I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Technical University of Munich, and a business mentor with internationally gained experience in Economics and Management. I defended my PhD thesis titled “Venture Capital and Institutions” and was awarded with PhD degree in Management and Engineering from Politecnico di Milano (Italy). My educational background was enriched further by a six months research stay at Utrecht University School of Economics (U.S.E). Regarding research, my scientific output appeared in Journal of Economic Surveys, Small Business Economics, Foresight and STI Governance among others and I have presented at academic conferences such as WINIR, IECER etc.. In addition, I have been acting as a consultant within startup communities, both in developed and emerging countries. I am co-founder of UK School in Kosovo – and have a strong desire to link my scientific knowledge with the business world.
