Jana is a long-term board member of the French-Czech chamber of commerce and has been representing CEE on the board of AltoPartners.
Jana comes from Germany, lives in Prague and is at home in all central and European countries, with a special fable for the Balkans. She is fond of languages and good literature. Her favourite energizer: listen to audio-books while riding her bicycle.
