We’re delighted to welcome Saskia Couper to our team here at Platform8. Saskia is our UX Designer for the Impact project, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have her on board.

Our commitment to nurturing diversity, promoting equality in the tech industry, and driving change for a better future is at the core of our company’s values. We believe in the power of mentorship and development, especially for women in technology. Our CEO, Lauren Salisbury, is dedicated to being a part of the change that will shape a more equitable future for the tech world.

Thanks to Callaghan Innovation and the Experience Grant for supporting Platform8, and enabling us to welcome Saskia to the team.  Saskia’s background in Digital Technology Product Solutions from Mission Ready HQ aligns perfectly with our mission, and we’re excited to have her on board.

UX (User Experience) is an integral part of our business, and we recognise its pivotal role in creating products that not only meet the needs of our users but also leave a positive impact on society.

So, what’s the Impact Project that Saskia will be working on?

Supply chains are pivotal in our battle against climate change, contributing to a staggering 60% of global emissions.

Hoesun Lee of IPCC Chain wisely states,


Imagine a world where every action within the supply chain takes environmental and social impact into account.

This is the future we envision, and it’s the driving force behind the Impact Chain.

Saskia will be working on the UX design for the Marketplace and Impact Chain, which utilises AI-driven insights and recommendations to empower businesses to make informed and responsible supply chain decisions. Our goal is to enable every business involved in global product distribution to seamlessly integrate economic, environmental, and social impact into every facet of their supply chain operations.

Saskia, welcome to the Platform8 whānau. We’re excited to have you on board as we work together to shape the future of supply chains and drive positive change. Together, we will make every action count!
