Sofie Blakstad

Following an early career in publishing and marketing, Sofie taught herself programming and business design, and subsequently spent most of her career building banks, including the first online bank for UBS. Having worked for eight major international banks in everything from IT infrastructure delivery to business transformation, run programmes in 60 countries worth over USD 1bn, and supported startups, Sofie decided the last thing the world needs is another bank and hence hiveonline was born. For hiveonline, Sofie has been invited to speak at the World Economic Forum, G7 and G20 groups and World Bank/IMF Summit in partnership with UNEP, where she is an advisor on fintech applications to sustainable finance, blockchain, identity and trust. Sofie is also a board advisor to Fintech Hub Sweden and represents hiveonline at the Climate Chain Coalition and various Danish research boards. She holds an MSc in Informatics with specialisation in organisation design, behavioural economics and behavioural anthropology. Sofie’s second book, with Rob Allen, Fintech Revolution (Palgrave Macmillan) will be published on 29 May 2018.
