Elena Sinel

Elena is a social entrepreneur and founder of Teens In AI and Acorn Aspirations, motivated to make a difference in the world by empowering young people aged 12-18 to solve real problems through technologies: AI, VR, AR, MR and blockchain. Elena ran her first hackathon in November 2015 with 150 people, 70 of which were teenagers aged 14-18. Since then, she has run over 10 hackathons, accelerators, bootcamps and a youth conference and worked with over 1500 children from across the world.

Teens In AI is Elena’s latest initiative, spurred by her passion for AI and its ability to create positive and lasting impact on the world.
