In brief:

- Sarah Kocianski is a FinTech and insurtech strategic with more than a decade of industry experience and she has worked with global organisations, scaleups and startups from across the financial services industry and beyond

- She sits on the committee at WVC:E, where she works with the VC industry to improve equality in the investment ecosystem, benefitting investors and founders alike.
