Deniz, 28 years old, half Romanian, half Turkish and grateful for all I am and I have; nice to e-meet you everybody!
She starts her studies, BA in Political Science in French, then she did a Master's Degree in Exegesis and Biblical Hermeneutical (more simple says: how to understand and interpretation/translation of Biblical text), and then I decide to follow Master Degree in Cybernetics.
I worked for different companies as a business consultant to implement SAP soft in the logistics area (materials and warehouses). My first job - when she was almost 16 years old-, was as a promoter, in Carrefour, for yogurts, where she learned how to be disciplined and interact with people. She has volunteer blood, she deals with this from high school, and she is very glad and happy for all the people who have a smile on their faces bring by me and my colleagues.
Last year, she begins with my 2 friends (Sabin & Laurentiu) – guided by the same values, ideas, and friendship – to create a start-up “Charge Me”. A mobile app which comes to support the driver of electrical vehicles to simplify their life.
Active in FinTech since 2003, having a technical background in computer science. She is on the board of Allevo since 2016, focusing on strategizing and finding new business opportunities.
She has an open heart for finding custom solutions to very specific customer problems and for making sure we deliver excellent products and services.
She is passionate about solving financial inclusion and driving more transparency in banking. I'm also an advocate of open-source software and business ethics.
She has closely worked with FinTechs early and growth-stage startups as part of a global startup program between 2013 and 2019. She participated at various industry-focused conferences and events (Sibos, Innotribe, Next Bank, Money2020, SWIFT Business Forums and Regional Conferences, Startupbootcamp Fintech, FinTechStage, Finextra Future of Money, Internet & Mobile World etc), gaining access to a vast network of key influencers of the FinTech ecosystem.
In a nutshell: "Geek with social skills".
