Teamwork makes the dream work.

Allow us to introduce you to Maria Gross, GTEC’s Lab Manager – she’s the main point of contact for all our startups and it’s about time you got to know her, too.

Maria came to us as an already experienced entrepreneur, having co-founded the world’s first brand for sustainable fight gear, Vehement (and yes, this speaks volumes of her fighting spirit and tough, can-do attitude). Maria also has vast experience in a variety of different accelerator programs, which has to do with her fascination with startups and her belief that their innovative approach to tackling problems has the potential to propel our society forward in a meaningful and impactful way.

This passion that Maria has for the betterment of society can also be seen in her degrees in both Non-Profit Management and Business Administration, which she has been utilizing in her widely-ranging experiences with entrepreneurship. But beyond the practical knowledge that Maria has gained in her professional past (which is not to be overlooked), she is a rock for our startups and our team, always going above and beyond even the highest expectations and making sure that everyone gets the best out of their time spent at GTEC.

Oh, and we would be remiss not to mention Maria’s second greatest contribution to the GTEC team – Nala, our office dog.

Want to chat with Maria about the possibility of joining GTEC (who wouldn’t want the free office space, 1:1 mentorship, and the chance to cuddle with Nala?)? Drop her an email at and join the GTEC community.

Sharing is caring!
