Alise Semjonova: “To be chosen from 15,000 candidates and make it to the final list of 600 young innovators is a great honour. This is also a recognition for Infogram for changing the way people think and talk about data. I am lucky to live in a time when you don't have to be born into a high status family or inherit the chance to change the world around you. It is earned with hard work and has no age limit. I hope this will inspire many young women in Latvia to make their ideas come true and start their own tech companies.”
