Aurelie was born in the South of France, but Barcelona stole her heart when she moved there after graduating from HEC Business School and Thunderbird School of Global Management in 2002.
Definitely restless, Aurélie Salvaire has the constant feeling that a multiplicity of windows are simultaneously open in her brain. She thrives in intellectually stimulating environments with a global perspective. Aurelie’s focus: women’s empowerment and emerging countries!
After 5 years as senior consultant in healthcare, Aurelie joined the nonprofit sector to set up the emergency unit of Oxfam Spain. She had the opportunity to work on the field as Finance and HR Manager of their refugee camp project in Ethiopia, and then she joined Ashoka France to support social entrepreneurs. Later, she became a board member of W4, as the Vice President of this crowdfunding platform dedicated to women empowerment projects around the globe. These last years have been dedicated to nurturing a powerful network of inspiring individuals. She is now curating TEDx events, especially TEDxBarcelonaWomen and TEDxBarcelonaChange. She has collaborated with different social ventures (HUB, Unreasonable Institute) and is now launching her own organization The A Factor to connect changemakers, especially through Innovation Tours in emerging countries.
Aurelie’s motto: let’s aim for the moon!
