Gabriella Kisoi is a Programme Coordinator at Nesta Challenges, working on the Canada Marine Plastics Project.

Prior to joining Nesta, her passion for innovative sustainable development led her to co-found a social enterprise that manufactures climate-smart, solar-powered market stalls with the aim of empowering fruit and vegetable vendors in East Africa to join the modern economy. Her professional experience further includes research and impact management, NGO fundraising, as well as leading Africa regional operations at the world’s largest platform for the launch of student-led start-ups.
