Born In: Yerevan, Armenia
Current Job: Co-founder and Chief Design Officer, Embry Tech
Nare was born and raised in Armenia. By the age of 23, she had already managed to obtain a bachelor’s in Design, marry an engineer, become a mother, and ultimately co-found 2 companies. Nare co-founded Embry Tech while pregnant – the idea started from one simple question: “Is it possible to create wearable technology to know when your weight crawls up on you?”. Today, Embry Tech is making that happen with the vision of turning all shoes to predictive health tool. Embry Tech raised around $500K in investments and grants and has won numerous prizes, ranging from receiving investment from Index Ventures to winning 1st place at the WCIT 2019 pitch competition.
Nare has helped change the perception that it’s impossible to create a hardware product company in Armenia. In addition, she has joined UXEVN, an organization dedicated to bringing the UX community in Armenia together, as a Community Growth Partner. Highlighting the importance of great user experience, Nare has managed to bring a human-centric approach not only to Embry Tech, but also to the startup ecosystem in Armenia, ranging from mentoring to helping other startup founders improve user experience.
