Katryna Dow_Digital Rights Evangelist_Episode 75

I’ve been friends with Katryna “digitally” now for several years.  Few have her passion when it comes to an individual’s digital identity and the challenges facing us in the digital age.  Katryna has focused this particular passion into Meeco, the company she founded in 2012.

This isn’t the first time I’ve interviewed Katryna either.  During our interview for the www.femtechleaders.com series she stood under an umbrella in the driving London rain and wind; and despite these conditions she spoke with me for almost thirty minutes.  Told you; her passion for digital identity shines through.

Natasha Kyprianides_FinTech Maestro_Episode 69

I’m always interested in the career arc of folks in the fintech space.  Natasha’s story is a great example of how much the financial services space is changing.  If you would have asked Natasha what she’d be doing for a career when she was young she would have said “Musician”.   Banker or technologist would have never, ever come to mind for her.

Fast forward a decade or so and Natasha is a highly recognized and respected digital banking innovator for Hellenic Bank.  As Robert Frost said “she took the path less traveled”.
