Developing meaningful relationships, bringing people together and helping them understand each other’s culture and objectives is Elene’s passion. She was born in Tbilisi, Georgia, but raised in Germany after her parents decided to flee the civil war in Georgia in the early nineties. After successful graduation from German high school she returned in Tbilisi in 2001 to study law and economics at the Technical University Tbilisi, with scholarships at the University in Eichstätt, Germany. During the past ten years while working in various international business organizations, she gained extensive experience of partnership building and start-up facilitation. In 2016, she co-founded Impact Hub Tbilisi to contribute to the development of entrepreneurship in Georgia and put the country on the global entrepreneurial map.
