Google startup chief talks tech and success

Google (GOOG) may be edging closer towards becoming a $1 trillion company but it is one of the most active companies in the world for developing new talent and companies.

One of the key way it is doing this is by its Google for Startups program, formerly known as Google for Entrepreneurs, which was set up in 2011. It consists of over 50 co-working spaces and has accelerators in 125 countries and helps turn business dreams into a reality.

It probably comes as no surprise that the tech giant picked Marta Krupinska to head up Google for Startups in the UK in 2018. Krupinska is a serial tech entrepreneur who built a successful social media website for travellers and expats before Facebook (FB) came onto the scene and went onto being a co-founder of fintech company Azimo in 2012, in which the team raised $70m in the process.

Krupinska sat down with Yahoo Finance UK for its premium show Global Change Agents with Lianna Brinded and discussed everything from how she founded her successful companies to how she managed to elevate so many people and companies while also being a successful creator and business person.
