Senior Programme Manager
At Nesta Challenges, Lubaina is passionate about open innovation and co-creation to create disruptive tech in financial and other regulated markets.
She is currently Senior Programme Manager for the second, consumer-facing, Open Up Challenge.
Lubaina comes from a varied career in banking, most recently at Barclays where she created and led Rise, their Open Innovation platform which included building fintech innovation hubs in five countries and running the Barclays Accelerator. She is involved in Women in Fintech initiatives and frequently volunteers her time at events encouraging girls to take up STEM subjects.
In her free time Lubaina travels and cooks - often at the same time when she drags her travel companions to cooking classes when on holiday.
