What is your first thought, when you hear the word „impact”?
I consider our generation to be lucky to live in an age, where millions of us have real opportunity to produce positive social and/or environmental impact. I love the democratised access to value creation.
What was the idea behind establishing the SignCoders?
SignCoders is a socially inclusive software development company. Our main goal is to create tech jobs for the deaf and heard-of-hearing. The motivation might not be trivial for hearing people who do not experience the challenges the hearing impaired face on a daily basis. The truth of the matter is: it is hard to climb the career ladder with hearing impairment. That is why we have created a work environment, where deaf team members can communicate with sign language.
What long term goals you have with this venture?
Our vision is to make an IT career path accessible to as many Hungarian sign language speakers as possible. We understand that digital jobs are not everyone’s cup of tea. But we are dedicated to create as many jobs that there is interest for.
Have you got any pet project beside the SignCoders?
I continue to work with a couple of my surviving angel investments. I also preside the Hungarian Business Angel Network, an association dedicated to grow the startup investor community.
What do you consider your greatest success?
Being born on a tiny planet in a vast universe is a mindbogglingly unlikely event. The rest is a quite enjoyable free ride.
