“They make me want to do better,” A day in the life of Georgia Hanias, CEO and founder of Ecology Media

Georgia Hanias is the founder and CEO of Ecology Media, a media consultancy based in London that specializes on raising the profile of social impact businesses in the technology sector. 

“My main focus is fintech. I also do some PR around sustainability and fashion as well. Believe it or not, the two sectors do collide,” said Hanias.

She is not new to fintech, having spent over 10 years’ working in the space. Her experience includes being one of the founding members of Innovate Finance, a nonprofit that aims to create a global financial services sector that is more inclusive and sustainable. Her time at the organization gave her the connections and inside knowledge she needed to branch out and start her own firm.

“Because I was in that ecosystem, I got to know all the entrepreneurs, and to essentially become part of a unique global network,” said Hanias. “It just made sense then to set up a consultancy of my own and work with entrepreneurs I had already met in the past.” 

Now, with four other teammates at her side, she is able to extend her passion for fintech to cover diversity as well.

“Over the past three years, I’ve been nurturing my relationship with the team, and together we’ve been able to forge a really interesting business,” she said.
