Monika has been working in the field of social entrepreneurship since 2013. Through her passion for social enterprise, Monika and her team became one of the key social enterprise field stakeholders in Lithuania. She is one of the main annual social enterprise summit organisers and has contributed to the field by initiating the first national legislation document. Furthermore, Monika has worked with partners to build the first social enterprise accelerator in Lithuania, and works closely with local communities and activists who want to develop their own social or community enterprise. She identifies herself more as a practitioner and has supported people to develop their own social enterprises. She has built four well known social enterprises in Lithuania (Social taxi, Senjoro, Innovators’ valley, NVO Avilys) and is currently working on two more – Skills laboratory and Kamarikės mansion.
