About me:

I am one of the founders of the Estonian cleantech startup sector and have helped the Estonian cleantech sector develop since its birth.

I started my cleantech startup journey in 2014 in the Netherlands and tried it again in 2016 back in Estonia. After that, an excellent opportunity to become the CEO of Cleantech Estonia, leading the acceleration programmes for startups, came about and led me to help founders do impactful stuff. I am also the Co-Founder of Little Green Fund and one of the region’s first cleantech specialised accelerators, Beamline, combining a portfolio of 78 cleantech startups.

Today my responsibilities are expanding in the Baltics region as the Executive Director of Cleantech for Baltics. I ensure that innovation opportunities and policy walk the same path, as well as make sure the more significant opportunities in cleantech investments are dealt with in a highly specialised manner.

Fun fact about me: I was born in the city of good thoughts, Tartu.
