Pronouns: she / her
Aleks is an energetic, people person who supports the Purpose Climate Lab team as a Project Manager. Aleks’ forte lies in networking, creativity and critical thinking. Her focus is set on the “big picture” and her life goal is to leave the world more sustainable than it is now. Aleks believes that by uniting people, this can be achieved.
With her early passion for the entrepreneurial ecosystem and technologies, she co-founded an event student organization START Warsaw and managed an innovation festival called Berlin TechON. Later, she reprioritized her values and chose to focus on projects that solve environmental issues. Before joining Purpose, she pinpointed the problem of smog in Poland and together with the START Warsaw team decided to organize STOP Smog event series, whose aim was to raise the entrepreneurial activity towards the problem of air pollution.
Currently, Aleks is also working on Projeks, a community blog, where she presents self-made sustainable products, alternatives to the industry. All projects are accompanied by a process walkthrough and open source data from research. The aim is to inspire more sustainable solutions and cradle-to-cradle mindsets.
Aleks graduated with a BA major in Animation from PJAIT in Warsaw, only to realize that 12 hours of daily screen time isn’t really her thing. She then decided to pursue her passion of entrepreneurship in Berlin. She graduated GEM with a MSc of Entrepreneurship in 2020.
Aleks has the energy to conquer all challenges, and will move mountains to reach her goal. Her strategy in forming bonds is openness, empathy and joke cracking. Aleks’ vocation is surfing (although she isn’t great at it.)
