She is deeply inspired by entrepreneurship, and is the founder of a Boutique Advisory Firm, bindi ventures, focused on advising and connecting across four core Innovation pillars (Corporate, Startup, VC Managing Partners, Government) for commercial success.
She currently sits on the Advisory Boards of seven startups and one Venture Debt fund, as well as sitting on Corporate Digital Advisory Boards (Shop Direct and Centrica) , the Advisory Boards of European Innovation Council, Startup Europe, Tech London Advocates, Ambassador for Innovate Finance, Governor at the University of East London, and was appointed by World Economic Forum to their Digital Leaders of Europe Group. Finally, she is working closely with a large European VC fund as a Venture Partner.
She is a strong advocate for promoting Women in Tech, and as such, seven of her Advisory Board roles are for women-founded businesses.
Bindi was born in the UK, raised in Canada, her entire family is from Kenya, but the lure of Europe especially London bought her back and kept her there!
