Businesses play the largest role in allocating resources in society. They employ people, they invest in communities, they innovate and progress our world further. I often describe myself as a social entrepreneur because I believe that business is the best tool of bringing about positive change - from our battle to normalise anti-racism to our collective effort to build resiliency against climate change. 

Here are the businesses I have developed and am developing.
