We support the professional development of young people who are interested in quantitative methods, mathematics and computer science in the area of finance.

The QuantFin Foundation was established in 2012 on the initiative of graduates of the Warsaw School of Economics, Warsaw University of Technology and the University of Warsaw, who wanted to connect students with incredible work opportunities.

Our ambitious goals come about in response to the growing popularity of a modern approach to financial markets and quantitative finance – fields covering financial engineering, risk management and quantitative methods in economics. 

By creating a bridge between innovative employers, and ambitious students we have a real impact on shaping the market – let’s make more positive changes together! 

The Board

Weronika Czaplewska

Board Chairman

While studying at the University of Warsaw, I worked in several research institutes, where I had the opportunity to meet outstanding academics who inspired me to pursue my master’s degree in London (London School of Economics). Studying abroad gave me a new perspective for further professional development. Currently, I am a strategic manager in a tech company. I also worked as a macroeconomics expert in the public sector. My interest oscillates around education.

 

My goal is to develop in QuantFin a thriving community of people who share common interests. I hope that the Foundation will be a platform for the exchange of knowledge between the academy, business, and students. I believe in the potential of young people and I am sure that they (we!) are able to set trends in the fields of finance and economics.
