Andris and Gunita Lanka
Architects of small business ventures
Andris: I started my first business when I was 21. A language school. Now 20 years later it has several thousand students, 16 locations in several countries. Run by 100+ in house staff and partners.
Gunita: we've had our ups and downs, but through these years we have acquired experience in various matters that we would like to share and see how that helps others in their context.
Andris: From education standpoint - I have BA in English, MA in English, Mini MBA in Business and a whole bunch of smaller degrees and courses. At the same time I have also acquired a PhD in the school of hard knocks having first hand knowledge of how to go from deep in debt to 7 figure brick and mortar business. And now Gunita and I run 4 businesses taking us all over the world on regular basis meeting great people and impacting thousands of lives.
Gunita: Our greatest achievement and treasure is Roberts, Annika, Linda and Krisjanis - four super wonderful kids that I believe will achieve far more than their parents ever dreamed of.
