for industrial production settings using AI methods.
With her master's degree in Robitics and some experience in the field, Kristina Nikolovska from Ljubljana, wanted to deepen her understanding and knowledge on how to put her technical and programming skills into a challenging working environment. After the exchange, she would start her own business "Robots appS”, which is about robotics applications development in industry environment and web support.
For this reason, she chose Stefan Zeidler as host entrepreneur and flew to Munich in February for a five-month collaboration. During her stay abroad, she learnt how to develop a competitive robotic product and gained knowledge in running a robotics company.
The exchange was a real success for both Kristina and Stefan as they mutually benefited from each other's knowledge and experience. From the beginning of the exchange, the objectives were clear and Kristina got the understanding she wanted in running business processes. She also deepened her knowledge in robotic, finances and familiarised herself with the German market, learned about the competition and consumers.
Each month, Kristina was introduced to a different aspect of the management of a business, notably the development of a marketing plan of robotics products. She also helped Stefan working on services and on-going projects on robotics solutions. In the last months, Kristina supported Stefan with fresh ideas about the robotic solutions in food industry and has improved the old solutions.
Stefan helped Kristina with the planning and development of her business idea, notably the marketing and communications plan to get future clients. Thanks to this exchange, Kristina has deepened her knowledge and improved her skills in business management and in robotics. She also gained better knowledge in the technical process of building a new robot solution testing and selling.
Working with Stefan helped Kristina improve her self-confidence further whereas Stefan reached out to a new market in Slovenia.
