Alena Agapitova joined The Innovation Group in January 2019 after graduating from University of Las Vegas Nevada with dual bachelor’s degrees in business administration, finance and real estate and urban economics, and a master’s degree in economics.
In the two years prior, she worked as a graduate assistant helping a diverse group of undergraduate students succeed in accounting, finance, economics, and statistics. As a tutor, Alena became proficient in articulating complex concepts from each discipline.
She is passionate about research and data analytics. For her master’s thesis, Alena estimated how China’s outward foreign direct investment affects the growth of the 32 Asian and Middle Eastern countries. Her primary goal is to bring all of her accumulated knowledge and skills to The Innovation Group and to help the company to succeed and grow even further.
Alena was born and raised in Chelyabinsk, Russia where the temperature reaches -35F in the winter time. So, she loves snow and winter activities and misses them in sunny Las Vegas. Her favorite vacation destination is Big Bear, CA. In her spare time, she likes to watch Turkish TV shows.
