I am a global technology entrepreneur with a passion for building startups into successful companies.
As angel investor and mentor, I actively support the growing Baltic rim startup community. My particular focus is helping startups from my home base of Latvia reach European, American and ultimately global markets. As such, I am co-founder and Chairman of TechHub Riga, the first expansion location for TechHub from London.
I am a board member and advisor for a variety of startups, including Reach.ly, where I am Chairman and Co-Founder, also Infogr.am and Cobook, among others.
Previously I have served in C-level positions, most recently at Livebookings, Europe’s leading provider of online marketing and reservations services to restaurants. Prior to that, I led business development and ran EMEA for AeroScout, a global provider of WiFi location solutions. I also worked at strategy consultcy Bain & Company in Boston and Stockholm.
