Angela Hamilton serves as co-founder/CEO/instigator of Quupe (pronounced “koop”), a sharing-economy platform that allows people to rent their things to locals. Based in Vancouver, Quupe’s mission is to enable the world to share resources; they recently received the 2019 EnviroFund grant and were a BC Tech Association Growth Award as a top-ten venture at New Ventures BC in 2018.
Previously, Angela founded Supersnack, a non-profit that produced fundraising campaigns and benefit events for AIDS charities in New York and Washington, D.C.; performers and members included John Oliver, The Mountain Goats, Aziz Ansari, and Miss America 2010, Caressa Cameron.
Angela is also a writer and editor; she served as Tablet Editor at McClatchy Newspapers (The Miami Herald, The Kansas City Star) and holds a masters in digital media from the Centre for Digital Media, as well as a masters in journalism from the University of Missouri. As a proud supporter of young leaders and social entrepreneurship, Angela is a speaker, mentor, and partner with communities and organizations such as The National Zero Waste Council, Chasing Sustainability, the Social Enterprise Conference, Green Bricks Education Society, Impel, Enactus, BCIT, YELL, Purpose Five, WISE, and Women In Tech. Impose Magazine once referred to her professional brand as “snarky intern,” and she’s been clinging to that ever since.
