Andrea leads Nesta’s challenge prize advisory work with the Government of Canada, consulting on the research and design of outcome-based funding projects.
In this role she also designs and delivers a challenge incentivizing solutions that improve real-time whale location in Canadian waters. Understanding whale location in real-time would better inform research and policy decisions and allow for proactive new schemes that protect life in the ocean.
Andrea also helps deliver the Open Up Challenge. Open Up is a prize fund to reward fintech companies producing next-generation products and services. The challenge is designed to stimulate the use of new open banking APIs to transform how small businesses discover, access and use business-critical financial services.
Outside of work, you’ll find Andrea searching flights for her next weekend adventure, getting excessively competitive over casual board games, or training for her next triathlon.
