What I do

Sol is an intern in the Research, Analysis and Policy team. In this role, she supports research focused on the field of startups and entrepreneurship. 


Sol is a master's student at the LSE, where she studies social innovation. Prior to this, she worked for international development and research organizations in Argentina, Benin, Guatemala, Honduras, Uganda, the United States, and Zambia. She graduated from UPenn in 2015. 
In a previous life, Sol dedicated 10,001 hours to tennis, managing to disprove Malcolm Gladwell’s 10,000 rule.  
When she is not at Nesta or LSE, Sol enjoys listening to podcasts and working on making her effective altruism idea a reality. 
Building upon our research on successful corporate-startup collaboration, today we launch ‘Open Innovation in Europe - A Snapshot of the SEP Europe’s Corporate Startup Stars 2017’, a report Nesta produced in partnership with Mind the Bridge as part of the Startup Europe Partnership initiative. The report seeks to map out best practices in open innovation strategies.
