Vilve Vene

For over 30 years, my mission has been to bring technology to the world of finance, so that nothing would stand in the way of building human-centric financial services.
On this journey, I have founded and led two companies - financial technology firm Icefire (founded in 2002 and acquired by Checkout.com in 2021), which successfully transformed more than 15 banks and financial institutions and is responsible for the infrastructure of the Estonian tax system, and a cloud based core banking platform provider Tuum. I have worked with many clients and partners from very different organizations from institutional banks to governments to startups. In these years I have learnt that for a tech company to succeed, world-class technology is of course a must. However, what makes it or breaks it for many companies is how
successful they are in building strong teams and company culture.
Currently, I'm studying Gestalt therapy and practice with a focus on executive leadership and
building successful teams.
My second passion today is to increase people's awareness and help companies find ways to
build and run technology in the way that supports a more sustainable living.
