Tatev is a Communication Specialist currently focused on the IT industry. She works as a PR specialist at the Yerevan office of DISQO, an American tech-startup.
Since her study years in the American University of Armenia (BA in English and Communications, 2017), she started her intensive professional experience in PR and Marketing Communications in IT, non-formal education, renewable energy and other sectors.
She organized youth events, festivals and international training programs promoting diversity, media literacy and intercultural communications. Her main focus now is raising awareness about the Armenian IT industry, entrepreneurial life and tech potential on the global scene.
With the absence of qualified academic supervisors and challenges with the quality of student research, there was a need to develop a platform where students and supervisors could meet remotely.
Tatev Mkrtumyan looks at five startups from the Armenian tech scene that are making a splash in four main industries that are growing during the pandemic.
Is it possible to keep promising scientists in academia? With little state funding for academic research, many young people are choosing the higher salaries of the tech industry. However, YerevaNN, a computer science and mathematics research lab, is a beacon of hope.
