Philip Staehelin is the Founder & CEO of DOT Glasses – a social enterprise solving the vision problem of the world’s 1 billion people that need glasses and can’t afford them. Previously, he served as Managing Partner of Roland Berger, CEO of CCS (a CEE fuel card and telematics company), and held other executive roles in A.T. Kearney, T-Mobile, Accenture, and UniCredit Investment Bank. He served as StartupYard’s first Executive in Residence in 2015, and became a StartupYard co-owner later that year.

Philip is a Swiss-American who was born in New Zealand, and although he has been Prague-based for the past 25 years, he has worked in a dozen countries around the world during his many years in management consulting. He holds an MBA from INSEAD (France) and a BA in Economics from the University of Colorado (USA). Currently he sits on the Boards of Transparency International, and the fastest growing company in the Balkans (Gjirafa, a StartupYard alumni). He speaks English, Czech and German – and in case of dire need, he can even manage some French.
