The Tago Arc bracelet launched its campaign on Indiegogo in February 2015. It was an explosive success that saw the project reach its funding goal within its first day. With such success on the horizon, we wanted to know more about a woman who is making technology work for her.

Let’s say hello to Nikoletta Szirmay, the co-founder of the Tago Arc bracelet who believes in openness, creativity, hard work, life-long learning and she also believes in herself.

Tell us a little bit about your brand?

The Tago Arc is a sensual elegant jewelry from the future. It is a fully functional bracelet that  is simple, stylish and elegant. With cutting edge technologies integrated into it, the Tago Arc is a luxury bracelet that you can continuously change the pattern and the displayed design on it to always match your mood and outfit. It has no buttons, you don’t need any cords and you don’t need to ever charge it!

What do you wish you knew before you started your business?

The business and the idea came from the CEO and founder, Zoli Kovács. From my side I do not wish nothing more than what I knew or rather felt before. I wanted to do something that I enjoy very much. In this case everything came together nicely.

What wearable, fashion or lifestyle, is on your must have wish list and why?

As I am passionate about boots. An absolute must have product are by Sols Adaptive. The other one is a truly girlish accessory. The Stelle Audio Mini-Clutch Speaker is an elegant speaker that can even charge your phone.

Who in technology do you admire most?

I admire people who have a dream, can find people around them who believe in it and that they do their best whilst working really hard to realize it.

What one word would you say defines you?


How do you find inspiration?

Music can always take me to another world and it can lift me up in every situation.

What was the best piece of advice you ever got? The worst?

I cannot recall one particular advice. I believe that everyone should find his/her own unique way of thinking.

What’s your favourite quote?

Will you be surprised if I say it is a quote of LIBER8? “RETHINK”. The quote is all about thinking out of the box, the crazier the idea you have the better. People from around the world are warmly welcome in our extended team to be the pioneers of a tech revolution. Free your mind, find cutting edge solutions, dare to think differently and dare to have grand impossible ideas!

What is your biggest pet peeve?

Insincerity. Being honest to others and even to ourselves is often cruel and hard, but that’s what helps us improve and grow.

What do you think is the biggest innovation of your lifetime thus far?

The internet.
