Kristel Kruustük

Kristel Kruustük was originally a QA manager and is now Testlio’s CEO. Recognized as “one of the most successful female entrepreneurs in the Baltics,” Kristel Kruustük was just twenty three when she quit her job as a QA tester and started down the path to founding one of Estonia’s fastest growing startups in history. Profitable from the get-go, Testlio picked up steam with customers like Microsoft, Lyft, Salesforce, CBS Interactive, Flipboard, Strava, and Hotels.com. Last year they announced their $6.25M Series A and expanded their position in the $943 billion IT services market. Most impressive for a tech company, more than 50 percent of its employees are women and minorities.
