Growing positive impact businesses in fashion.


My name is Ieva [ieva] Zubavičiūtė. I go by Ieva Zu. I am an investor, strategist and recruitment consultant working with positive-impact consumer brands and sustainability innovators in fashion to help grow best practices in the industry.”

More about me


To me, Ieva serves as a role model for female leadership and proves that superpower doesn't have to come from being hard. 

Ieva was our lead investor and remained heavily involved throughout the entire fundraising and closing process and showed true commitment and professionalism. Just recently Ieva helped in hiring our 3 latest full-time hires and has been extremely instrumental in that process.

Sandra Pangonyte, CEO The Knotty Ones

Ieva is a fantastic recruitment consultant. Of course, she finds good candidates for the roles, but her real strength is understanding the business and finding a person who is the right fit. For me, this is the greatest challenge in recruitment and Ieva really takes her time to get this right. I have worked with her across several brands and always come back to her.

Rupert Maunsell, Managing Director CARAVANA

Ieva has always surprised me with her vision and deep knowledge of the fashion business as well as human resources management skills. Her positive and well-mannered attitude is a great support to any investment team and venture's management; her assessment is a precious asset for any decision-making process.

Luca Donnini, CEO Temperley London

As Ieva's business partner at Fashion Business Education, I only have words of praise to describe her professionalism, knowledge of the industry, managerial skills and creativity. Along with her positive and open personality, these features make Ieva a valuable asset to any project. Throughout 2.5 years we worked together, Ieva has proven to be a trusted partner, a true expert of the fashion business, a person with high moral standards and a clear mission to create a positive impact in the fashion industry.
