Local is the new global.

We believe that the local economy is the path to a sustainable and prosperous society. Our mission is to help local businesses flourish and thereby help the local economy thrive.

In the last 10 years, flourishing globalism (we import meat from Argentina, foodd from Brazil, yogurts from France, we have a multinational financial system) is hitting its limits and no one is as enthusiastic about globalization as they used to be. However, thanks to technologies (internet, 3D printing, blockchain, etc.) we can already produce and distribute most things locally. But it's not just about technology, it's mainly about people! The local economy is the path to a sustainable and prosperous future, although the world will still remain global - but in the sense of connectedness.

We are no quick yeast, which started with pandemic. We have started with local businesses back in 2013 when we developed the first online reservation system for restaurants in Czech republic –StůlHned. But we were too slow, so our team was acquired by Rockaway and we were merged with Storyous - one of the most successful Point of Sales system for restaurants in CEE region. Patrik, as Head of Product, made tens of interviews with restaurant owners, and learning that most owners don't care about PoS system qualities, if they don't have enough customers. So we started with LocalHeroes - an easy to use marketing tool for local businesses so they can easily promote themselves - from that it was only a small step to Colocals.
We are a international team with many experience, but still a little bit dreamers, who are ready to move the world for the better :)

František BorsíkMarketing Advisor

Svoji kariéru v oblasti marketingu a startupů jsem odstartoval v roku 2014 na Islandu - jako člen Startup Iceland Initiative. Od té doby jsem spolupracoval s mnoha startupami z Islandu, USA, Česka i Slovenska. Úplně od zelené louky jsem vybudoval marketing pro světového výrobce antén - RF elements. Momentálně pomáhám a konzultuji různé firmy v oblasti marketingu a business developmentu.

Roman MarušinskýDesign & Photography

Designu a fotografii se věnuji již od svých 15 let. Miluji vystihnout a zachytit ten správný moment a na Colocals mě nejvíc baví zachytávat zajímavé příběhy různých místních podniků.

Fabian MaumeGrowth

“Mám několikaleté zkušenosti v oblasti marketingu, ale i v oblasti IT, což mi umožňuje vytvářet jedinečné automatizované nástroje a strategie v oblasti marketingu. Působil jsem jako Head of Growth pro Flatio a pomáhal jsem s růstem několika startupů jako Satismeter, Velocity Protocol, atd.

Původem jsem z Francie, takže miluji dobré víno a jídlo. Ale popri mých studiích jsem si zamiloval Českou republiku, zejména Brno a tak jsem tady zůstal a hermelín taky není nejhorší:) ”
