Description

Dear entrepreneurs,

We are glad to announce that we are partnering with Startupbootcamp FinTech and LendIt for our upcoming event focused on women entrepreneurs and their journey of building a business in the London Tech Scene.

A mixed panel of leading entrepreneurs and VCs will share their experience about obtaining funding, overcoming business challenges and best practices for building a successful business in tech.

Speakers:

Ghela Boskovich, Head of Fintech and Regtech Partnerships, Startupbootcamp Fintech; Founder & Global Ambassador, Femtech Global; Director, Global Strategic Business Development & Marketing at Zafin

FemTechGlobal is a community working towards inclusion, diversity, and supporting those invested in changing financial services for the greater good through technology. It is comprised of women and men who recognise that diversity in thought, experience, and gender make for a richer resolution to the challenges the financial services industry tackles, and that each diverse voice contributes to a better solution.

Anna Gudmundson, Group CEO at Kin

Anna Gudmundson has worked in the technology sector since the start of her career after graduating with a Master of Science in IT engineering from Uppsala University. Anna's experience is primarily in the mobile, software, online and big data sectors; working both with start-ups as well as companies like luxury mobile phone manufacturer Vertu and multinational Alcatel-Lucent.

Now the CEO of Kin Group Plc, Anna is able to combine her passions for digital technology and business with her personal dedication to wellbeing and making positive social impact. Kin delivers engaging and effective digital wellness programmes for corporate organisations. Using their full resources in technology and human behaviour, Kin helps their clients increase productivity and reduce absenteeism and healthcare costs. Individuals and teams are kept engaged through intelligent, personalised interaction and gamification, and supported by a strong culture of wellness.

In an era that will be defined by how we respond to our ever-increasing challenges in the wellness industries, Anna's belief in the power of preventative care is at the core of Kin's offering and strategy – that technology and data can and must accelerate this positive change.
