Professional Board Member, Mentor, Angel Investor.
My journey to where I am today started during my first year of law school, where I became interested in social processes. This interest led me to politics, and at the young age of 23, I became one of the founders of the Latvian People's Party, which was the largest party in the country at that time.
I spent over 10 years serving my country as a politician and high-level civil servant, where I was in charge of various organizations and ministries. I also served as a mediator between politics and business for various financial industries as lobbyist. During the last 7 years I spent most of my time in non-executive roles in big state-owned or private companies.
My experience in working with many teams, stakeholders, politicians, and international organizations helped me recognize my biggest passion and talent - inspiring and supporting other talents. From the teams that I led, many new leaders emerged who went on to serve as leaders of ministries, big state-owned companies, or even the European Commission.
Today, I am a mentor in organizations like Cocoon, Seedstar, and Junior Achievement of Latvia. I am also an investor in companies like Commercialization Reactor Fund and Monetizr, and a co-founder of Tvigy. I find joy in watching both organizations and people grow and flourish.
My vision is to serve as a leader's potential opener. I see my path as supporting organizations and people who have the energy and passion to build a better future for us in the Baltics and globally. Like a gardener who is passionate about seeing how plants grow, I too enjoy observing the growth and progress in both organizations and people. Being a valuable support as high-quality fertilizer for leaders and young people fulfills me with a sense of purpose.
