Elena has an impressive career, with experience as an investor in global startups, investment banker in London and strategy consultant in Dubai, and now considers that she has found her purpose in building businesses with a positive social impact.
She studied at Dartmouth College in the United States and believes that this is the experience that opened the way to the world.
"I am grateful to life that it took me to Dartmouth after applying to 13 American universities. But only there I had an almost full scholarship. My family barely found the money for my plane ticket, and I managed to get various jobs around campus to make some money. In addition to the highest standard education I received, I had the most beautiful college experience, in which I met people from all over the world, I combined my business interests with those in international relations and environment protection; I studied in exchange terms in Italy, France and South Africa and I did projects in India, Israel, the Dominican Republic and Ecuador. ”
