I am co-founder & CEO of Qoorio, the knowledge social network. Share your insights, learn from others, and grow your knowledge.
I am also co-founder & CEO of Vieta, a chat for doers, and Vieta is my primary place for work coordination.
Prior to that I co-founded Vinted. Vinted is a marketplace to sell and buy preloved fashion. Vinted has grown to multiple markets and became the first Lithuanian unicorn.

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!

I’ve spent 20 years in Private Wealth Management working for various financial institutions and managing HNWI’s money to finally find myself being lost in social entrepreneurship.
Since 2014 I run M. Čiuželio labdaros ir paramos fondas and it’s core project Sidabrinė linija - a free of charge befriending and support line, providing information, friendship and advise to the lonely and isolated old age people (www.sidabrinelinija.lt).
I am happy to discuss my past and present experience, knowledge gained and lessons learnt in finance, investments, wealth management, social entrepreneurship as well as off-business (for profit and not for profit) topics I’m passionate about:
Wine, food, art, bonistic, travelling, haute horlogerie, road biking, high altitude mountaineering.
Welcome to a very short summary of my experiences:
I’m investing my time and money in possibly the riskiest asset class – early stage technology driven companies. Let’s discuss why and how I came to this or simply pitch me your idea.
Before shifting to start-up building and investing I had a nice career opportunity in one of the largest Nordic Banks. We can discuss the pros and cons of such job.
Have visited over 20 universities in EU and USA to select the best place for my own studies. It came to be Copenhagen Business School (CBS). During my stay in CBS I did an Erasmus exchange program to Vilnius University and now can compare VU with foreign universities. Let’s discuss how to select a university that matches your needs and how to be prepared for studying abroad.
I’ve rebuilt 3 cars and many go-karts with my own hands when I was a teenager and have been participating in amateur rally racing with 2 of the cars. Had my driving license since I was 16 (legally). Will not fix your car, but can tell a couple of stories from the garage and how is it possible to drive from 15 years legally 😊
As a more meaningful hobby had been skiing since I was 6 years old and travelled across many European ski resorts, so if you’re into winter sports this could be a potential ice-breaker for our conversation.
This is what I know and there’s so much more that I don’t know and would also be curious to learn, so let see if our experiences can collide in creating something interesting and meaningful.
Geek, angel investor to many LT tech startups like Vinted, Trafi, Interactio, Pixevia and Qoorio as well. Currently COO and a Board Member at Vinted.
Apart from that, I’m an electric cars enthusiast and amateur race car driver, that likes to dedicate some of my spare time to competitions on the most challenging track in the world - the Nurburgring.
Always passionate to talk about investments to tech companies, AI, clean energy, future mobility, education.
For the last 5 years we have been building a company that fully replaces simultaneous interpretation equipment in live events. It has been the best decision in my life that brought many failures, successes, lessons and growth.
I also tend to live life to the fullest, so would be happy to share my life hacks.:)
Getting things done comes in a lot of shapes and sizes.
- For the last 13 years I’ve been building an ad-tech business in CEE region at Adform, helping world’s largest mobile ad-tech company to conquer emerging markets at InMobi in London and lately building a mobility software platform in Vilnius that serves such companies as Apple, Lyft, Google, Gojek, Swiss Railways, VW Group, City of Berlin, City of Munich and others.
- Cycling, Snowboarding, MotoGP, Zalgiris, Sneakers and Aviation are amongst things I enjoy :-)
12 metų dirbu su socialiniais projektais. Fundraising'as, projektų paraiškos, komunikacija, NVO strategavimas, administravimas ir net neįdomioji apskaita - viską esu darius, o kai ką tebedarau iki šiol.
Gebėjimą sudėtingus dalykus paaiškinti paprastai realizuoju vesdama mokymus ir konsultuodama.
2017 laimėjau I vietą socialinio verslo idėjų konkurse Reach for Change ir įkūriau el.parduotuvę Anksti.lt. Ji skirta padėti neišnešiotų naujagimių ir specialių poreikių vaikų šeimoms. Likimas pamėtėjo smarkios asmeninės patirties, tad taip jau gavosi, kad puikiai išmanau ypatingo vaiko auginimo reikalus.
Nuo 2018 esu VšĮ Geros valios projektai, kuri adminstruoja pirmą ir vienintelį aukojimo portalą Lietuvoje, vadovė. Socialinės iniciatyvos, jų komunikacija, aukojimas, digital fundraisingas - dalykai, su kuriais ryte keliuosi ir vakarais užmiegu.
Esu tikėtoja, kad geri darbai išgelbės pasaulį. Bet tik gerai ir profesionaliai daromi :)
Today, I am an investor who believes in entrepreneurship ideas and creative minds. Previously, I was the founder and managing director of Viltechmeda. Viltechmeda designs and produces syringe infusion pumps, intended to deliver drugs to the human body. We sold our pumps in more than 80 countries. In 2008 I sold the company to the US company Moog Inc.
Throughout my career, I have managed some different projects, startups, and enterprises, so I hope I know what it takes to successfully (and responsibly) compete in the business world. I am certain that technological advance will help us to build a better world. That said, I still think that ethical and kind relationships between people are the cornerstone of any business (and private life).
