What I do

Meesha was an Education Intern in the Innovation Lab. She supported the development of the education crowdfunding platform Rocket Fund, an online fundraising tool helping teachers to access the lastest educational technology.


Before joining Nesta, Meesha taught at Civitas schools, a think tank school network for children who need extra educational support but who don't have the means to access private tuition. Prior to this, she was an account manager at a digital advertising agency. Meesha has an MSci in Natural Sciences with a major in Genetics, Evolution and Environment and a minor in Organic Chemistry.

In July 2017, we completed our second wave on Rocket Fund, with 35 schools from across the country participating. Here we evaluate our findings and share what we’ve learnt so far
