Born in Daugavpils, graduating Stockholm School of Economics in the top tier Olga’s next move obviously was getting into finances. Lo and behold she moves to Oslo to study environment which then takes her to an exchange program in the Philippines. She decides to stay and join a non-profit organization working with social startups and then moves on to starting her own non-profit organization (that she’s still a part of) to help children from marginalized communities to have access to education. Longing for home she returns home to become an icebreaker at LIAA where she leads Startup Support division. The Startup Instigator as Olga calls herself is used to sleeping with one eye open so she wouldn’t miss any opportunities taking herself and the Latvian startup ecosystem to the next level.
