People are demanding your attention all day long. You’re tied up in meetings or emails all day long. The bigger the firm, the harder it is to communicate. That’s why Jan Řežáb and Cyril Höschl have come up with a tool that measures internal communication flows and helps to uncover defects in teams’ communication and improve their time management.
Bad communication, foul moods, and unpleasant office environments are among the problems that companies often leave unaddressed. EMU is a Czech tech startup that has delivered a solution for handling troubles like these more simply and effectively.
We each breathe over 10,000 liters of air every day. Do you know what’s inside that air? The Finnish company named 720° is able to measure it. Their project, at whose beginnings stood a Czech named Tomáš Novotný, is improving the atmosphere of offices and more with the power of big data.
A flexible work spot in a shared office — that is, coworking — is one of today’s biggest office trends. Last year there were already about 14,000 coworking centers worldwide. This year they will be joined by a new center in the Czech Republic — also to be the nation’s largest.
Coworking, Community, Colossal. That’s the startup WeWork, which has grown in the mere eight years since its founding into the largest global player on the office-spaces market. But it’s about more than just renting working spaces to freelancers and small enterprises. WeWork also provides consulting and complete branch management services in this area to multinationals. According to the Wall Street Journal and Dow Jones VentureSource, WeWork is currently valuated at $20 billion, making it the sixth most valuable global startup, right behind Uber, Airbnb, and SpaceX.
