Humane innovation for better futures, with Karel Golta
Karel J. Golta is my guest on Episode 95 of Inside Ideas with Marc Buckley.
In the age of artificial intelligence, digitization and machine learning being human is often neglected. For Karel therefore it is crucial that innovations are not only human- centered but rather make mankind - in unity with the entire ecosystem – the decisive factor in development.
That this is something only design can do - that is not to be argued with the entrepreneur and convinced business-romantic. Unlike many other topics, the founder and managing director of three companies – INDEED Innovation, TOI - Tools of Innovators, and Simplexion –
loves to discuss, to provoke and to put the finger into wounds which no one previously suspected that they exist.
As a speaker at international events, as initiator of successful event formats, as a board member and adviser of different cluster organizations, as lecturer at the Steinbeis University in Berlin as well as columnist and author, but above all in his attitude as an entrepreneur, Karel provokes and inspires executives as well as young talents to new thoughts.
It is important to him that design is perceived as creation of value and not as creation of objects. And even more so he wants to convey to his listeners and readers the idea that design plays an important role wherever you want to change something.
