Founders from Iceland have traveled far and wide to build the future. One of those is Stefania, she is full of energy and in the last 7 years has been part of 3 different startups and now has founded her second startup. Avo made waves when they got into YCombinator the Silicon Valley Accelerator that has created companies like AirBnB, DropBox etc I am happy that she was able to make her travel schedules work to participate in Startup Iceland 2019.

Here is a brief bio of Stefania.

Stefanía Bjarney Ólafsdóttir is the CEO and cofounder of Avo – preventing human error when implementing analytics. A mathematician and philosopher who has been questioning things for a living for seven years, in genetics (deCode genetics), mobile games (QuizUp), enterprise employee training (Viska) and now at Avo. She was the 1st data person at QuizUp (100m users, backed by Sequoia and Tencent) as well as Head of Data Science, Lead of the Growth Team, and many other things, and has now fueled that knowledge into cofounding Avo (backed by Y Combinator and Heavybit).

I am looking forward to listening to her talk about her experience of working in different stages in a Startup.
