Helena has always been thinking out of the box, looking for creative solutions to traditional issues, always with a scalability focus. When being a consultant, she had to think on new ways to solve problems and then implement her proposal to evidence it worked out.
More thand a decade ago, she started bringing the same mindset to the tech startup ecosystem, where she has several “hats”, looking at everything from different sides of the table.
Serial entrepreneur, involved on several startups as co-founder or member of the entrepreneur team, she has established operations in US, UK & Spain and been Board Director both in Spain and at the US, having raised in global around $30M.
Her passion for tech startups led her to invest on more than fifteen. She has also been Board Director/Advisory Board in some promising startups. Now Helena is investing international money in Spanish Startups. as Venture Partner and Investment Manager at Romulus (Hansmengroup) and Supporting Partner at Calm/Storm VC.
Experiences like these, confirmed the importance of the governing bodies on companies, which led her to receive training through Executive Programs (UCLA, IESE, HARVARD) focused on how Board Directors can bring value to companies. She is now serving on several boards, as independent board director.
Eager and committed, Helena is always willing to share and contribute. She belongs to the Governing Board of BarcelonaTechCity, and to the Ambassadors of Barcelona Health Hub and Ambassadors Council of Collider (Tech Transfer initiative of Mobile World capital) and is speaker in tech events.
Moreover, she is committed with diversity, which has led her to belong to Governing Bodies of associations with this mission and
having co-founded and boosted a group of women angels.
On weekends you’ll find her surrounded of nature, dedicating time to her biggest Project: her family.
