Miriam Wohlfarth is founder and Managing Director of one of the biggest fintech companies in Germany – RatePAY. She founded RatePAY in 2009, besides the fact that nobody knows fintech´s at that time there also was the financial crisis. Due to hard work, luck, great partners and a wonderful team RatePAY has today more than 150 employees and is already profitable. Miriam is not just an entrepreneur, she is also a partner at Paymentandbanking which is one of the biggest payment networks in Germany.

To live that credo she is mentoring and coaching young talents in cooperation with Axel Springer Plug and Play and with the female entrepreneur program by Amazon. In addition, she is a big supporter of Global Digital Women and the Fintech Ladies because she knows how necessary it is to expand her voice.
