Qoorio inspires people to be curious and not afraid of sharing their knowledge and wisdom with others. Qoorio team believes that by connecting with others, we create a better community that benefits all of us and ignites the progress. So, it would be strange if you have no idea about the team behind the platform that inspires connection and curiosity, right? Meet the people who believe in togetherness, transparency, and active communication with the world:
Gabija Grušaitė is a co-founder of Qoorio. A few years ago, she and Justas Janauskas came up with a brilliant idea for an online community, which would inspire everyone to grow together. Gladly, Gabija and Justas are not only dreamers but also determined and goal-orientated people, so this idea came to fruition, and Qoorio was born. Today, Gabija gladly shares how to turn ideas into actions and keep the perfect balance between personal and professional life. “I know a few things on how to keep a healthy balance in this madness.”
On top of being a co-founder of two early-stage companies, Gabija is also an artist, writer, and vivid traveler. She happily shares her stories from South East Asia, insights on creative writing and publishing, and the joys of having pets. Throughout her life, Gabija realized that it is much easier for people to stay on the right path and enjoy happiness if they do it together with the world. So, if you have any questions about life, writing, starting a business, traveling, or just being a human, you can meet Gabija on Qoorio at any time!
As you already know, Justas Janauskas is also a co-founder at Qoorio. His ambition is to create a worldwide marketplace where people could share their human knowledge. It is a big goal, but Justas is no stranger to challenges and success as he has previously co-founded Vinted, a startup that eventually became the first tech unicorn in Lithuania. During his time running Vinted, Justas faced many difficult business decisions and realized that at the time, there was no platform where he could get his professional answers. A few years later, Qoorio was born, so that everyone else who has hard decisions to make or needs some guidance, could find it in no time. Justas also shares his insights on Qoorio.
Want to start your career as the CEO? Justas can help you: “I started my career at 14 as a software engineer, and co-founded Vinted after 10 years, which grew from a team of 2 to 250+. It was not trivial and it was not easy, though very rewarding.” Want to raise capital from tech VCs? Just can share his insights on how he raised over $50 million for his projects. And he can also share his love for his beautiful dogs Grozis and Hazelnut. Gabija and Justas often joke that their dogs are more popular than them as stars of Instagram @grozis_and_hazelnut
Nerija Skvernelytė is the Head of Marketing at Qoorio, so whenever you receive an email from Qoorio or see an advertisement on Facebook or Instagram, you can know that it was Nerija and her team’s idea. As she describes herself: “I am passionate about all things digital! So passionate in fact, that I have been working with digital products for more than 10 years. As an individual who prefers a great working structure, I am extremely keen to find a solution for everything that comes my way.” That’s what makes Nerija a brilliant marketing expert – not only she knows what she is doing, but she also has a lot of love for her job.
Of course, we all experience ups and downs in our lives. To help other people to deal with their professional burnouts, Nerija is sharing her story from 2017 when she faced a serious burnout from her work. That forced her to re-think many things in life and re-shape her career towards greater goals and purposes. “Being yourself is courageous… and not always easy. I can share how I became to accepting myself and how expressing your needs is crucial to your mental health.” So, being a versatile and ever-growing human-being and professional, Nerija fits in Qoorio perfectly and promises to make you fall in love with ads!
Ronaldas is the Head of Product at Qoorio. He sees life as a collection of beautiful visual pieces that create wonderful and aesthetic stories. You just need to know how to connect those pieces, and Ronaldas has over 13 years of experience in that. “One of the biggest achievements is a documentary movie about famous Lithuanian athlete Rūta Meilutytė “Rūta”. Once you go through the whole film-making process, any other challenge is a piece of cake.”
Ronaldas is great at fulfilling his artistic skills in the business world as he understands how to create, visualize, and shape products so that they would bring the most satisfaction to potential users. Even though commercial cinematography is different from classic film-making, both disciplines have something in common – they require the creator to have vivid thoughts, clear strategy, and unique artistic voice. “I am happy to share my knowledge on any chosen topic and to help you see the field from professional and personal perspectives.” So, if you want to see life through Ronaldas’ lenses, make sure to meet him on Qoorio!
If you enjoy the interface and functionality of Qoorio, you should thank Andrius Janauskas, the Lead Software Engineer. “I am the first developer to join Qoorio. I can share what it took to get to where we are and what kind of decisions I made from very beginning.” His in-depth knowledge of programming, software engineering, and app development makes Andrius one of the key people behind Qoorio’s success. He might not be able to reveal all the secrets behind Qoorio, but he will definitely help you to find the right path for your app. “With years of app development experience, I know what it takes to develop a competitive, functional, and user-friendly app.”
Needless to say, there is much more to Andrius than his professional skills as a developer. Andrius is passionate about life, has great insights about the Lithuanian startup environment, and knows what it is like to reach his goals even if that requires fasting. “Feeling like you cannot keep your weight in check? I had managed to lose 15kg in 6 months by changing the way I eat.” So, if you have any questions to Andrius, make sure to find him on Qoorio.
