Justice has played a great role in your life. How has justice helped you in entering the world of entrepreneurship?
The business environment depends in a large part on law and there are inevitably different legal aspects, including familiarity with the law and contractual relationships, that lay the basis of corporate governance. In practice however, it is too often that companies find themselves in all sorts of troubles already during the phase of building a company, precisely due to the wrong legal decisions made by the owners or managers. In relation to the entrepreneurial perspective, my legal knowledge has provided me and our company with competences that allowed us to enter the market more painlessly before starting a business and also in the start-up phase. As well as the ability to analyze situations better and decide when and how to involve foreign specialists, prevent violations of the law and solve simple problem situations.
