I’m also co-founder of the foundations TechHub Riga and TechChill. We kick-started the startup community in Latvia and set up the leading co-working space in Riga. Happy to share insights (and painful lessons learned) from this experience
About meAfter spending two years at Stanford Business School during the run-up to the dot-com bubble, my appetite was whetted in the intersection of technology and business. Aside from two years at a strategy consulting firm Bain & Company, I have spent the past 18 years at technology startups in the US and Europe. Highlights include two executive roles, including 2 startups, that each exited for over $100M. Today I am Managing Partner of Change Ventures, the first and largest pan-Baltic seed fund, backing ambitious Baltic founders building global success stories.
Outside work, I am a father of four kids, husband to a wonderfully smart and capable lawyer. I co-founded and am on the boards of the TechHub Riga and TechChill foundations and work to support the startup community in Latvia and the other Baltic States. Last but not least - I’m a part time (aka weekend) warrior in the National Guard of Latvia, serving as an infantryman in the 1st Riga Brigade.
