All these interconnected aspects complement each other, create an ideally functioning mechanism, a whole ecosystem which can be compared with an alveary: an example of productive and useful work which gives not only joy with its result but is also an example of good organization and mutual aid. Ruzanna Martirosyan, Karen Vardanyan, Gohar Gabuzyan - these devotees founded such an ecosystem which brings lots of useful honey to every cell of our society and named the founded company again Alvarium which means “an alveary” when translated from Latin.

They got together 5 years ago and started creating the same alveary in which now the honey of success of many people is gathered and those are the people who found themselves, believed in themselves, who received a piece of timely and useful advice and information. They work not only with different single people but also with companies and even with the whole regions of Armenia. Every year they gather the information from the whole world, adapt it according to the conditions of our reality, share the obtained knowledge, organize various training courses, invite interesting speakers and trainers, hold consultations, analysis, evaluation and planify.
