Started as a journalist, I finally became a project manager (coordination of international e-learning projects, managing projects with budgets of several millions PLN). In 2017 I co-founded scooter-sharing startup “JedenŚlad”, taking care of mainly operational and customer support activities.
I have been out there in the capital market for 15 years. First 3 years in pwc in business advisory, then 6 years in mBank in holding and subsidiaries business development manager and finally 6 years as deputy CEO in Ipopema TFI / Asset Management responsible for investment products % sales.
In 2016 along with a group of trusted investors I created Kredytmarket, a Polish lending fintech providing working capital finance to small business owners in a 100% digital process. Kredytmarket launched at the ends of 2016 and since that a time gained trust of hundreds of e-commerce merchants, doctors, freelancers and a whole spectrum of micro entrepreneurs.
