Zofia Kierner

Founder

My name is Zofia Kierner, and I have been a social activist since I was 8 years old.

I am a global citizen (born in Poland, lived in a couple of places around the world, currently in the US).

Like most of you, I am full of dreams, passions and goals. And although many doors have been closed to me with the excuse that I am too young, and not experienced enough, I believe that we, young women can make a difference! It is our voice, that can make a true impact! 

That’s why, at the age of 16, I decided to create Girls Future Ready Foundation. Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much. I hope you will join me, my team, our community so we can grow together!

HerStory Project

As technology is starting to touch almost every part of our lives, building effective regulation that will ensure that innovation is only used for good will be crucial.

That is why we are so excited to introduce our next #HerStory project that is all about law and its intersection with business and technology. Our mentor, Kamila Kurkowska is a trailblazer of LegalTech initiatives in Poland and the creator of Fundacja Women in Law aiming at promoting the role of women in the legal industry, particularly in new technologies.
Kamila is an experienced businesswoman who is excited to mentor one of you in your path to getting your business idea off the ground! If you have an idea that lies in the field of tech, law, or the intersection of the two, then this is the project for you! With Kamila’s help, you will take the first steps to launch your initiative and bring it to life! Deadline for applications is June 13th!
