Why Elevar?

Easy – impact investing. Prior to joining Elevar, I was looking for a job that matched my passions. In Elevar I found the perfect combination, as I would not only contribute to the firm but also make an impact in the world.

How would you describe what you do at Elevar?

Some of my primary activities at Elevar include reviewing business plans, preparing monthly reports and building financial models, which involve financial analysis. I am also in charge of portfolio company management and research.

What is a good day at work like for you?

For me, a good day at work includes activities that involve teamwork, reaching milestones, or getting to know entrepreneurs and their problem-solving business models. As a plus, sharing lunch with my colleagues.

If you weren’t working at Elevar, what would you be doing for a living?

I would probably be involved in the startup ecosystem. I am fascinated by how new business models solve everyday problems and even better, bring solutions to underserved customers.
