Welcome To My Blog!


My name is Bettina Gárdász and I am currently studying (MSc) Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship at Kingston University. As part of my Masters project for ‘Design Thinking‘, I am using this space to write blogs of my postgraduate journey and personal development. I will post inspiring and innovative ideas and articles that interests me and hopefully you will find it useful and empowering.

I little bit more about me:

I am a Kingston Business School Alumni and graduated from BSc Business Management with Entrepreneurship Business Experience in 2019. You can read more about my academic background and achievements here.

During my placement, I have started to develop my business, called Enterior – “The Future is an Open Door!”. My start-up specialises in electronic and automated interior doors. The doors are operated with a variety of smart technology that would give easy access to its users, specifically benefitting people with mobility challenges.

In addition, I have keen interest in research, so beside university, I work on various research projects to gain more insight about the field. My aim is to pursue an academic career path and start my PhD journey after my postgraduate studies. 

I hope you will find my web blog interesting and please share your comments, thoughts and inspirations at the comments section!

Let’s learn together on this journey!
And don’t forget:

Also! Let’s keep in touch! Follow me on:
