After graduating with her Masters in Management, she worked in Business Development at a fast-growing financial technology start-up firm for two years.

BYP Network, described by many as “LinkedIn for black professionals” helps to connect ambitious future leaders for networking purposes and with corporations for job opportunities. Their mission is to ‘change the black narrative’ by bringing together like-minded individuals to collaborate on ideas and to progress within the workforce. Currently, they have a job board, host diversity conferences and have an app currently downloaded in 65 countries. With a network reach of tens of thousands, they have worked with top companies such as Spotify, Accenture and Deloitte and have featured in both The Times and the Financial Times.
