My Story

I'm Ruta Danyte, a creator, facilitator and entrepreneur in Lithuania and Ireland

Hats don’t matter while learning is my path. Project-based learning.ย  To me, learning is about questioning, exploring, synthesising, sharing. Going wide and going deep. To me, business is a project, a project that can be started by anyone. Such a joyful tool for navigating an uncertain everyday while adapting to a new reality and creating solutions to problems I/we face.ย 

When I see “a lack of…” in my surroundings and on the news, I strive for a business education for all, business training that is curiosity-driven, project-based and ecological.ย 

If my purpose resonates, ping me for a virtual coffee. I always love collaborating on exciting projects.
