Hanna Zubko (Bio as featured in DataNews magazine)
With Ukrainian roots, founder of a Belgian company and based in New York City, you can hardly call Hanna Zubko a quiet, self-effacing lady, quite the contrary. Particularly considering that she was involved in co-creating IntellectEU at the age of 19, and has created 5 companies since then. With training at the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy, (economics and entrepreneurship), Lehigh University and Bologna University, she combines at her company technological excellence – a must in the financial world, with standards and careful management. Indeed, ‘becoming increasingly responsible for more and more employees and their families adds a dimension to entrepreneurship’, she states, remembering growing up ‘very poor’ in a post-Soviet Union era. Today, the company is very cutting edge of technology, with Hanna Zubko becoming a fairly well-known person in the ‘blockchain’ world, through IntellectEU’s founding member participation in the Linux Foundation’s Hyperledger project (integrating various blockchain technologies and contributing to cross-industry open standards for distributed ledgers).
As a result, Hanna Zubko has been nominated femtech leader in New York (2016), and invited to meet president Obama at the Global Entrepreneurship week (June 2016). In December 2016, she was one of the people met by the ‘Straffe Madammen’, at their NYC trip. Next to bringing IntellectEU to ‘the next level globally’, Hanna Zubko wants to be a role model for young female talent making a way in technology and banking, actively working on gender equality in the FinTech and ICT industries.
