Purpose x Passion = Progress with Marta Krupinska

This month we’re celebrating Female Entrepreneurship around the world with #SGWomen and are over the moon to be hosting Marta Krupinska, Head of Google For Startups UK, for a special virtual fireside chat on 23 June.

Marta Krupinska

Marta is a Polish-born serial entrepreneur and Co-Founder of international money transfer start-up Azimo, one of the fastest-growing fintech companies in the world. To date, it has raised over $70M from top VC firms and connected over 1 million customers to the platform.

In 2017 she stepped away from the company, founding Astarte Ventures FreeUp.io, which offers salary advance services to create everyday financial freedom and became the Entrepreneur-in-Residence at the leading global GovTech venture PUBLIC.io in 2018.

Since December 2018, Marta has been Head of Google for Startups in the UK, where she and her team are on a mission to identify and support the next generation of founders on their journeys.

GFS now consists of over 50 co-working spaces and has accelerators in 125 countries, helping turn business dreams into a reality with a strong focus on inclusion and societal change.

Marta was recognised by Forbes as one of Europe’s 30 Under 30 for Finance in 2016, as Fortune Most Powerful Women Alumna in 2017 and as Evening Standard's London’s Most Influential People in two consecutive years, 2017 and 2018. She holds a Masters in Organisational Psychology from Jagiellonian University in Poland and a Management degree from Columbia Business School.

Passionate about ‘tech for good’, diversity, equality and well-being, Marta will bring her expertise and trailblazing enthusiasm for socially-driven entrepreneurship to this exciting Startup Grind Scotland Virtual event with hosts Nick Murray and Jude Duncan.
