Gayane Ghandilyan Arakelyan

CEO, Digital Pomegranate

Gayane was born and raised in Gyumri, Armenia. She pursued and received her bachelor’s degree from Yerevan State University in Cross-Cultural Communications. In 2013, Gayane returned to her beloved city of Gyumri and, with the help of partners from the USA and Brazil, co-founded Digital Pomegranate (DP), a software development company. Gayane ran DP’s operations for six years, building a culture of success in app development for global corporations, such as Sony.

In 2019, Gayane assumed the role of CEO for DP – she quickly enhanced the app development business and expanded into Armenia’s startup ecosystem with two new companies ExpressVAT and Triviamatic. She also engineered the switch to Google’s Flutter development language which has made Digital Pomegranate the largest Flutter development company in the world. A proud mother, wife, and CEO, Gayane is now innovating even more by creating Armenia’s first 100% solar-powered IT office, education center, co-working, and creativity complex which will transform her community.
