Startup Crusader
Olga Barreto Goncalves
After graduating from the Stockholm School of Economics in Riga, Olga's next move was (obviously!) getting into investment banking. Having realised that plain finance was not her cup of tea, she moved to Norway to study renewable energy and the environment. Couple years later she travelled to the Philippines to manage a series of solar and tidal energy projects. Over time she gravitated towards digital technologies and tech4good, and helped accelerate 10+ social startups across South East Asia. Years later, when the super typhoon Haiyan devastated the Philippines, leaving more than 10,000 people dead and millions in displacement, she co-founded a non-profit organization, FundLife, to help children from marginalized communities to have access to education and employment. The organization is operational until today, working with UNICEF, FIFA Foundation and International Olympic Committee, among others. Longing for home, Olga returned to Latvia in 2016 to become a Chief Startup Instigator at Investment and Development Agency of Latvia, where until July 2020 she was leading StartupLatvia team. At the moment, she is taking a sabbatical leave while keeping an eye on new adventures worth jumping into.
