Lady of the iLab: Marija Gavrilov
Born and grew up in Serbia, but in the last three years spent the majority time in the U.S. As the U.S. State Dep’t UGRAD Program alumna, I studied sociology, Arab studies and social research methods at American University in D.C. in 2012/2013. My engagement with entrepreneurship and tech began two years ago, when I attended Entrepreneurship Program at Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth as one of 10 selected young people from the Balkans. Ever since, I’ve been in love with the drive, intelligence and creativity of people I meet in this field, all over the world. This year, I administered the same program at Dartmouth for six talented entrepreneurs from Kosovo. I currently work with Startit, most relevant IT blog (www.startit.rs) and movement towards stronger IT eco-system in Serbia. As a regular author, I mostly write about mobile, cloud, machine learning and IT education. On the side, I lead Braver – bilingual blog (www.braver.in.rs) about entrepreneurship. Even though I spend majority of my time writing, I’m looking for ways out of this role and into sales and business development.
