Lydia Ottaviano

Business Analyst



Before Tech Elevator, I was...

a student at Wesleyan University.

The students at Tech Elevator...

spark an atmosphere of unceasing enrichment and curiosity.

The best part of my day is...

sharing knowledge, ideas, and space with such a brilliant team - both staff and students.

Lydia is a graduate of Wesleyan University where she received a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and Data Analysis and a Certificate in Civic Engagement. Originally from Long Island, New York, she joins the team in Cleveland as a fellow in the Venture for America program.

In the past, Lydia has worked as a Project Coordinator for CCA Global Partners, an international cooperative business conglomerate, spent time organizing a summer schools program in Prague, Czech Republic, and performed sales and marketing for a major military and outdoor apparel manufacturer.

In her free time, Lydia can be found kicking the ball around on the soccer field, learning how to combat food insecurity, binge watching Gilmore Girls, and avidly supporting the best New York sports teams (let's go Giants, Mets, Rangers, & Knicks!).
