After graduating from the distinguished New York University in Abu Dhabi, Marek joined KPMG Slovakia in 2015 as an Analyst at Valuation services team. During his studies, he co-founded a startup and gathered experience from incubators and conferences in New York, Abu Dhabi, and Berlin.

As part of KPMG Slovakia, Marek was involved in preparing financial models and pitch-decks for many startups and has been active in many startup events as mentor, participant and winner as well. He worked mostly on M&A transactions and deals.

In our discussion, we cover such topics as

  • why he decided to study a very uncommon combination of business and visual arts,
  • what he enjoyed about the New York Unversity in Abu Dhabi,
  • what he learnt from his first startup project,
  • how he became startup mentor and what fascinates him about the startup world,
  • what are the most common pitch deck mistakes,
  • what investors expect from you when you approach them,

and much more.

Enjoy and give us feedback so we can improve with every new piece, thanks!
