Beata Young


A serial entrepreneur from Poland, Beata Chairs Mission ToRun, a startup community she co-founded in the birthplace of Copernicus. Building on that 500 year innovative legacy, Beata created tech cafe coworking space Hanza Cafe where she has mentored women and startups from around the CEE region and beyond.

Beata facilitated and developed the Women in tech community “Geek Girls Carrots” in diverse cities such as Torun, Tokyo, Dublin and Oslo. Her business focussed workshops have been attended by delegates from as far afield as Armenia, Australia, Turkey and the USA.

In Malta Beata is in the vanguard of business diversity through government schemes and particularly her latest venture, Women On IT, a Malta based movement dedicated to changing the gender dynamic of the #BlockchainIsland and beyond.
