Diversity Role Model of the Year

Nato Chakvetadze

I’m a startup enthusiast, working on a wide range of projects within the startup ecosystem of Georgia. My favorite field is the entrepreneurship education, where I have 10+ years of lecturing, 4+ years of training, and 2+ years of mentoring experience. Before joining 500 Global (aka 500 Startups) as a Program Local Representative, I gained extensive past experience of working at private, public, community, and media organizations. The limited list includes: Head of Entrepreneurship Direction at Ilia State University, Chief Advisor at Presidential Reserve Fund, Manager at Startup Grind Tbilisi, Editor at Entrepreneur Georgia, and eCommerce Project Management at ALTA (technology Retail Company). My passion is working with aspiring entrepreneurs, especially women, youth, and immigrants. My key accomplishment is the creation of an online community of Georgian entrepreneurs – Startup Info (a facebook group), which unites 14K+ active or aspiring entrepreneurs. Today Startup Info represents the key space for the Georgian startup ecosystem to share thematic information and/or find peer support.
