E51 - Meirav Harel (World-renowned expert in Fintech and digital disruption)

“When you're recording a movie, there are a lot of scenes that don't get into the final movie. The same as with your life, you kind of choose what moves the plot forward. What's the next thing that I need to be putting right now that will move this plot forward. We are the editors. We are the actors, we are the players. We are the directors. We are the everything. Right?” We don’t get to speak to as many women as we’d like to on this podcast. We’re actively working to change that. We hope that from our little corner of the audio web, we’re helping some women listeners out there tap into their own superpowers and step into their full potential. We know those are big words, but for what it’s worth, we mean them. In the meantime, when we do get the opportunity to speak to women founders through this platform, those interviews have always been powerful, leaving us with a lot of food for thought. This episode is no different. In it, we speak to Meirav Harel. With over 20 years of experience in finance, technology, and creating award-winning fintech innovation, Meirav Harel is a world-known expert inTech, blockchain, digital disruption, the future of finance and investment, and trading Interfaces. She was named "1 of the 100 most inspirational women in Blockchain", by Cryptonewspoint, 1 out of 36 “top women Revolutionizing Crypto around the world” by TechRoundUK, and listed twice on the "Women in Fintech Powerlist" by Innovate Finance UK. She lectures, consults, provides management services and in-depth research, to leading international financial, regulatory, and academic institutions around the world, is an ambassador to EWPN (European Women in Payments Network), Former Head of Strategic Innovation Technologies at BDO, and the list goes on. We discuss: • Leaving a stable job, despite being valued and enjoying it, in order to do something of your own. “Am I capable of taking a challenge upon myself and building what I see in my vision of what I can bring to the world, at a larger scale?” • The power of setting goals and stepping outside of your comfort zone • What it takes to be an entrepreneur • The difference between failing and being a failure • The almost endless potential that lies in combining different disciplines with technology • Why everyone should learn to code • The evolution and future of money • How to navigate mentally and emotionally when things get rough at a personal level • How the people you surround yourself with impact your performance, and what traits Meirav looks for in the people around her • And more! Listen to her, there’s a lot to learn from this real-life superwoman. She's been through a lot and is not afraid to be vulnerable and authentic, sharing her knowledge and hoping to empower others on their journey.
