Katia Mavrelli

Founder / Managing Director


Founder Katia Mavrelli was born and raised in Greece. Following her love for the intangible Greek heritage and her passion for travel, she completed a circle of classical studies before launching Inspiration Ventures.

Graduated with a BA in Classics and Education from the University of Athens, and an MA in History of Philosophy of Art and Aesthetics from the University of Thessaloniki, she is currently pursuing an MBA from Harvard Business School. Her ultimate vision is to apply Harvard Business acumen and classical aesthetics to Greek travel design.

Along with her studies, Katia has been working as a professional licensed tour guide and tour program director. For over 10 years, Katia has welcomed visitors to Greece, pulling back the curtain to introduce her travelers to historical sites and local culture, as only a native can.

Today, Katia and her team of experts, endeavour to promote sustainable tourism -building bridges among cultures while offering Inspiration Ventures’ travelers unique insights to the history and culture of Greece.
