Elab was established in 2012 in Warsaw, Poland, by two young entrepreneurs who had studied overseas and wanted to help other students enjoy a similar international experience.
Currently, the company is run by Tom Ravensdale, the major investor, a Chartered Accountant of British origins, who grew up in Southern Africa, qualified in South Africa and worked in London before moving to Warsaw.
The Milan office and general Italian operations are run by Davide Quinto, an Italian who traveled extensively with his entrepreneurial parents as a young child, studied at Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Milan and completed his studies in law at University College London.
To date, we have submitted over 6,000 successful student applications to the university of their choice. We are proud to boast that almost 1,000 of those students were placed in top tier universities namely, Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, UCL, LSE, CASS and many of the leading Russel Group universities. These numbers continue to grow year on year.
Annually Elab runs the largest education event in CEE for students, parents, universities and schools. We expect over 4,000 registered visitors at this year’s event.
