Lena was the Corporate Affairs lead at Nesta in the Communications team. Her role was to engage with external stakeholders and raise awareness of Nesta’s exciting projects.

Before joining Nesta, Lena spent five years working for the Greater London Authority, managing the Mayor’s private sector team. She also worked as an independent consultant to UpRising and The Institute of Community Cohesion, developing their private sector strategies.

Lena has a BA (Hons) in Law and Business and an LLM in International and Commercial Law from Sheffield University.

In her spare time, Lena enjoys going to the gym, reading and setting herself annual challenges (the last being a five mile obstacle run in a canal).
