I was born and raised in a small but ambitious and fast growing country Lithuania. However, due to my eagerness to explore, challenge myself and learn new things, I always felt that the place was too small for me.
So after my international studying experience in South Korea and The Netherlands, I started to work at Philips in Amsterdam. I worked for a global transformation programme where I got my strong passion for process excellence.
Later I moved to shipping giant Maersk, where I was quickly promoted to form a new transformation department and take on a leadership role. This whole transition to a new industry and early leadership experience was tremendous for my personal development. But in the midst of my promising career, I decided to do something crazy! I quit my job to pursue volunteering with women in rural Uganda.
My career break year allowed me to take a step back and think about my purpose. This is when I decided to come back to the business world which was always so exciting for me, especially as I grew up with entrepreneurial parents. Currently I am working at Schuberg Philis, which is a Dutch technology company known for its self-steering customer teams and continuous highest customer satisfaction ranking (Giarte).
On top of my daily work I am still engaged with Integrated Villages NGO in Uganda and write my personal blog on issues which are typically faced by young professionals.
Other people often describe me as someone who is not afraid to get her “hands dirty” and deliver results.

I'm a human that appreciates great ideas, with even greater people behind them.
I am an early stage VC My @ Mangrove Capital Partners.
To put it into context - my job mostly consists of rigorous travelling around Europe, working with exceptional entrepreneurs and discovering their unique insights as I go. Everything that I do in life comes back to my idea of the world being afloat with opportunities. One only needs to go out and find them!

but first, COFFEE
then CREATIVITY, TRAVEL & INSPIRATION
Over 12 years ago, I had to decide if I wanted to pursue a dream of establishing my business or stick to a comfortable life as a hired professional. Neither of those options is terrible, but I took a gamble and co-founded Caffeine LT (formally known as Coffee Inn). I was fortunate enough to translate my love into a business, which is expanding to this day.
During the first years of Caffeine LT, I was struggling with money and had to find the motivation within to carry on. However, I have also learned that emotions, philanthropy, and kindness can only boost business performance. It is about time for all of us to get rid of those terrible stereotypes that businesspeople only care about money, and start living in a world where they contribute to society and create sustainability.
I am passionate about startups. I have founded my own, privately invested in 15, and is now managing 70Ventures with the goal to make additional 70 investments.
When I need to get out of town, I visit my farm outside Vilnius. I am experimenting with niche products including birch sap and bison.
My investors triple their capital every 6 years.
For the last 10 years I earned my investors higher than 18% ROI each year. None of my investors ever lost their investments. Want to become one of them?
I invest in small businesses targeting yearly ROI=100%. Have a business plan that you think could do that? Even if you don’t I might help you by becoming your partner if I like your idea!
I am the founder of Investor Seer - the best club and affiliate network for your business to join.
