Katryna Dow is the founder and CEO of Meeco, a world leading data independence start-up in the emerging personal data economy. Meeco is a Life Management Platform that connects people to their digital services, data and devices. Meeco enables individuals to manage, share, provide consent and exchange their identity and personal information for mutual value via The API-of-Me. Meeco was founded in 2012 and conceived over a decade ago, as social networks were on the rise.
Katryna envisioned a time when personal sovereignty and contextual privacy would be as important as being connected. Now a decade later, personal clouds, mobile technology, AI, Internet-of-Things and regulation such as the GDPR and PSD2 have converged to make Meeco both possible and necessary. She speaks globally on privacy and data innovation and currently serves on two IEEE standards working groups; Co-Chair for the Personal Data and Privacy Committee, part of the Global Initiative for Ethical Considerations in the Design of Autonomous Systems, and Chair for the new P7006 – Standard for Personal Data Artificial Intelligence (AI) Agent.
