Ayla Kremb

Ecosystem Manager at Refinitiv

I am passionate about helping startups grow into profitable businesses.

With close to a decade of advising over 300 teams across the globe on growth strategy, tackling issues from sales to business development and fundraising, I bring a holistic understanding of what it takes to build thriving ventures.

Since I grew up in Sweden and Germany, kicked off my career in the US and currently splitting my time between Singapore and Australia, I have a knack for connecting with people from diverse backgrounds who are passionate about making an impact through entrepreneurship.

Today I lead APAC business development at Catalyst where my global team of funding specialists partners with smart teams developing cutting edge products across industries to unlock capital resources via private capital, grants and government incentives.

When I’m not brainstorming growth strategies with high potential companies, I coach business leaders in sales, stakeholder management and leadership skills.
