Cedric Maloux is the managing director of Startupyard. Cedric is the most prolific digital entrepreneur in Prague. He has helped transform the Prague district of Smíchov into the Silicone valley start-up centre of Czechia.
Since 2011 Startupyard has accelerated over 70 companies. Many of which have since been acquired, with over THIRTY MILLION EUROS of seed capital raised. The Startupyard program culminates each year with a DemoDay, a public pitching event which is a magnet for influential executives, investors as well as technology and business media. DemoDay is a showcase, and an opportunity for the start-ups to gain investments, engage with the business community, and to pitch their ideas. A live dragons den. It has become so popular that tickets to attend DemoDay sell out within days of going online.
Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions – I caught up with Cedric via Zoom where we talked about technology, start-ups, poker and pivo.
