2017 Women in payments®
rising star award recipient
Bianca
Lopes
SVP Business Development & Marketing, BioConnect
Bianca is an owner and Senior Vice President of Business Development and Strategic Marketing at BioConnect, as well as a public & Keynote speaker.

Relentlessly motivated from a young age, Bianca immigrated to Canada from Brazil at the age of 17. Before joining BioConnect, she began her journey as an entrepreneur, starting and selling two businesses - one in trades and one in software, all before the age of 27.

Bianca leads BioConnect’s Cloud Business and the BioConnect ID product line. She is responsible for the business development team and marketing team and works to develop strategic global partnerships in multiple verticals, currently fast-growing on Banking, FinTech, Payments and Technology.

She is refreshingly vocal (and REAL) with just about every topic of conversation. From talking about some of the tougher aspects of being an entrepreneur to why mentorship and self-awareness are two things she attributes to her success - and won’t give up as her career progresses.


WHY THE AWARDS COMMITTEE SELECTED HER NOMINATION


Working in a field that is still evolving, the committee felt that Bianca’s accomplishments, poise and entrepreneurialism were impossible to ignore. Her confidence and tenacity have driven her to succeed in multiple industry sectors, and the committee was impressed by what she has achieved in such a short amount of time. Having launched and sold a tech loyalty business, worked in banking, and built a social enterprise in fashion, her ongoing fascination with technology and data have been a common thread throughout her young career. Having pitched at Money 2020 she has been instrumental in putting BioConnect on the world stage, and we can only sit back and watch as she continues her ascent. Congratulations Bianca for being selected as one of our rising stars.
