About Nesta

Nesta is an innovation foundation. For us, innovation means turning bold ideas into reality and changing lives for the better. We use our expertise, skills and funding in areas where there are big challenges facing society.

Seun is the Head of Data and Innovation at Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM).

Seun’s passion for understanding how we can harness data and technology to improve people's lives led her to the suicide prevention charity CALM.

125 lives are lost every week to suicide and 75% of all UK suicides are male. CALM exists to change this, by provoking conversation, running life-saving services, and bringing people together so they reject living miserably.

Alongside a multidisciplinary team, she is responsible for the development, implementation and use of data to enable insight-led decision making and allow CALM to deliver products and services that meet user and organisational needs.

Prior to CALM, Seun worked for over a decade in the private sector and has experience in publishing, agency work and venture capitalism.
