Danielius has also shown a profound interest in entrepreneurship before. He won 2nd place in the Garage48 startup competition in Riga.
Danielius has been involved in other extracurricular activities as a member of the SSE Riga Debate Society, a Chief Coordinator for Lithuania for SSE Riga’s “Days of Opportunities” and a teaching assistant for the courses Macroeconomics, Microeconomics and Financial Economics.

About the Anders Wall Scholarship
Every year since 1981 the Anders Wall Foundation has provided scholarships to young talents in the fields of entrepreneurship, science and research, rural development, international studies and music in Sweden and Finland. And since 1996 the Foundation has supported talented students from SSE Riga. What is at least as important as the scholarship amount in monetary terms is membership in the prestigious Wallumni network, which consists of all the former scholarship holders. Members meet regularly and take international study trips together.
