Knowledge Transfer Manager - Investor Communities - Diversity & Inclusion

Shiemaa Ahmed

I lead the social impact investment communities and diversity-focused investing as a Knowledge Transfer Manager for Investor Communities.

I have worked in various organisations focused on social entrepreneurship, impact investing, and international development across the UK, Middle East and North Africa. My work in Sudan ranged from working in a policy and development think tank to advising international development agencies on private sector development and social entrepreneurship strategies. I completed my MBA from the University of Oxford in 2021 and led the operations of an early-stage media-tech and cyber security start-up in London.

My role at Innovate UK KTN is focused on driving more private investment into innovators that are founded by, or serve, historically disadvantaged communities to achieve impact.
