Software development team lead turned entrepreneur. She founded CryptoChicks.ca in July 2017 with the vision to empower and inspire women interested in learning about blockchain and cryptocurrencies. “Women are underrepresented in technology, especially in blockchain technology. I wanted to create a friendly environment where women with non-developer and developer backgrounds met other women with similar interests. I managed to inspire and involve many women who become blockchain evangelists themselves”. Elena holds a Master of Computer Science and her specialties are in blockchain, cryptocurrencies, application architecture, design and development.
