Emerging Europe Talks She’s Next with Agnieszka Hryniewicz-Bieniek 

“I am a person that loves experimenting and learning by doing. So, it was just this passion that I have for doing something that makes the world better, but by learning from others, by connecting with other cultures, and learning from those who have already done more,” Agnieszka Hryniewicz-Bieniek, Global Director of Google for Startups, tells Andrew Wrobel.  

She has created a series of workshops called ‘I Am Remarkable.’  

“We just wanted to support women to be more confident and to acknowledge their strengths, to acknowledge how great they are. Because very often we see female founders don’t have that confidence. This is a very popular workshop right now, not only among female entrepreneurs but also any female audiences from students through regular individual contributors.”

Agnieszka comes from Poland and she cherishes the fact that she comes from Central and Eastern Europe.  

“I come from this region. This region is diverse, with a lot of different countries, and a lot of different connections and languages. Somehow it’s easy when you come from this region to actually manage a global team because you already know that there are differences, you already know that you have to listen and you understand the context of the other person from another country…because it all matters in communication.”  

Today she manages Google for Startups initiatives carried out in over 125 countries including joint activities with over 60 incubators, accelerators, and co-working spaces.
