David Schalkhammer

Job title: Co-Founder, Head of Product

Project: SchoolFox
Website: https://eu-youthaward.org/winning-project/schoolfox/

David holds a degree in business and innovation management but his real passion is technology and design. He has several years of experience in tech-startups (Internet of Things, EdTech) where he focused on software and hardware project management, product management and user experience management. He served as Chief Innovation Office, Head of Product and SCRUM Product Owner.

With the SchoolFox app we adapt modern communication technology to the specific needs of schools. After two years working on the project, we are overwhelmed with the positive feedback and the impact we can have on society. This is what rewards us for the tough and challenging journey. I am looking forward to meeting many likeminded people with the same drive and motivation from the international EYA community and connect on an European level.
