“Progress comes from finding opportunities in problems.”
Having worked in Private Equity, Jelena has developed a deep-rooted interest in Business and Finance. This cause stems from her curiosity about new technologies: “During my studies at ETH, I´ve been greatly inspired by my professors and colleagues by their amazing ideas and perseverance to execute them.” This opened up the gateway to Venture Capital, where she experiences the best of both worlds. “Having an insight on an amazing idea and getting to meet the founders of a start-up as well as experiencing their passion for it, is very infatuating and what motivates me most in VC.”
Outside of work, Jelena enjoys spending her time in art galleries, at the gym, and exploring new cities.
