Gabriela Triffiletti

Co- Founder
U-able

Gabriela (a Hyper Island post-graduate) combines an eclectic mix and unique background of media (creating digital presence for newspaper), entrepreneurial leadership (as a Small Business Owner and private wine merchant), and theatre production (currently teaching “Empowering Creative Thinking” through theatre to MBA students).

Now, as a Design Thinking innovation consultant, with an obsession to disrupt industries, she believes in a collaborative creative process that empowers teams to challenge ideas and ultimately impact society and our world. Currently working with the ITC (United Nations) to address the refugee crisis through U-able: a crowdsourcing translation app that connects skilled refugee linguists with businesses in need of translation - an idea that was developed in collaboration with Tom Anderson, FreemandXP and Common Good.
