Founder, Vitality

Natalya is a co-founder at the Vitality Fund, focused on fueling the future of nature-based solutions.

She brings over a decade of experience in investor relations, consulting, and building strategic partnerships spanning corporations, start-ups, government, and civil society to create solutions to seemingly intransigent challenges.

Building on her experience as Director of Strategic Partnerships and Interim Managing Director working across sectors to generate innovative solutions, Natalya co-founded Vitality to address the need for tangible investable opportunities in nature-based solutions. Leveraging global, multidisciplinary networks, Natalya aims to build the pipeline of nature-based solutions.
