What I do
Pippa joined Nesta from Climate-KIC, the EU’s main climate innovation initiative. At Climate-KIC she managed an accelerator programme, organising grant funding, coaching, incubation space and brokering investment relationships for clean technology start-ups.
She began her career at Student Hubs through the Worthwhile Graduate Scheme, designing and implementing skills-based volunteering opportunities for students at Imperial College London.
Pippa has a BA in History from the University of Cambridge. Whilst at university she was a founding member of Cambridge Development Initiative, a student-led international development charity operating in Tanzania, of which she remains a trustee.
Pippa is from the Lake District so spends as much time as possible up a hill or by a lake. She enjoys exploring London on foot, modern art and funk and soul music. She speaks French and Spanish.
