„In Amazon, we believe that success is measured against the possible, not the probable. We are not afraid to fail as failure and invention are inseparable twins. To invent you have to experiment. If you know in advance that it’s going to work, it’s not an experiment. We are very proud to work with so many talented Czechs who are not afraid to experiment and innovate to continuously enhance our customers´ experience.“
„Our goal is to help society and individuals on their path towards prosperity. Prosperity under today’s turbulent conditions cannot be achieved without constant INNOVATION. To be innovative means to always be one step ahead. To be first among the best. Therefore, we are a proud partner of Innovation Week; we support our clients’ innovation and we also constantly strive to improve ourselves. We innovate so both we and our clients can move forward. To be ERSTE, the first, not only in innovation, but in everything we do.“
„Some say innovation is a must. For us, innovation is a matter of course. There is no way around it in the IT world. We enjoy trying out new things. We love to combine the familiar in order to end up with better working solutions. Sometimes, we end up wasting both time and energy, other times we celebrate success. The good thing is that we always learn something new in the process – not only about the world around us but about ourselves as well.“
„The Czechs are a nation of handymen, inventors, engineers, craftsmen. The time has come to sell it to to the world. It has never been easier thanks to the internet. Let's finally collect Olympic medals not only for sport, but also for the innovation! I am glad that the Czech Google is in support and good luck to all who enjoy to push the frontiers.“
„There are three types of people: those who cause that things happen, those who watch what happens, and those who wonder what happened. Innovation Week, which includes an IMECS conference organized by the University of Economics, contributs to the development of an innovative culture and creats a platform for sharing good experiences and inspiration that are necessary to ensure that more people in the Czech Republic belonged to the first-mentioned group of movers and innovators.“
