Peteris Kelle (LAT)
Peteris has been an entrepreneur for 10 years now. He started his entrepreneurial journey by co-founding a web development agency. Few years ago he co-founded his 2nd company and took part in building a company culture management platform, called Efectio. In 2021 he was the only one selected for the Young Transatlantic Innovation Leaders Initiative (YTILI), which is the U.S. Department of State’s flagship program for emerging entrepreneurs from Europe, and is organized by WorldChicago. Peteris had a privilege to learn from high level entrepreneurs in the USA (and companies like Amazon, Boeing, SeekOut and many more) about building a business if you have nothing to start with and is willing to share the knowledge with anybody who has at least a small interest in entrepreneurship.
