Being a Part of the Value-Driven Team 

On my first working day, I had an overwhelming feeling that I wanted to bring real value to the world through my work. It has always been a top priority for me to be part of something that would make a difference and contribute to making the world a better place. When I started at Deep Knowledge Group, I quickly realized that this was exactly the kind of company I had been searching for. The work we do here is truly meaningful and fulfilling, and I am proud to be a part of it. 


At Deep Knowledge Group, we are making a positive impact on the world through our cutting-edge data-driven insights, VC investments, public longevity projects, AI, Blockchain, BigData, and what is the most exciting for me — FemTech. Leading the FemTech Analytics spin-off, I am feeling my personal impact on unlocking the massive FemTech industry and show how technology is improving women's health. We provide access to information and tools to move the industry forward. Our work is making a real difference in how technology is positioned in women’s health, and I am thrilled to be a part of it and see how the FemTech industry is evolving thanks to our efforts.
