Andrew is part of the Global Markets project at BII, co-funded by NNF and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The LMICs project and eventually Andrew’s task is to connect BII’s startups and their breakthroughs which are often affordable in bigger economies, to emerging markets in low and middle-income countries, and in this way, tap into BII’s vast potential to improve the lives of millions of people, while being part of building our global-scale presence and impact. On this journey, Andrew is delving into workable go-to-market strategies, bridging society, ethics, policy, and technology, while taking care of our people, our planet, and impact-driven business.
Born in rural Uganda, Andrew moved to Denmark in 2009 and has since lived in Nørrebro with his wife and two children – Taj & Liv, where their biggest adventures are nature walks and active playgrounds trips. He carries a wide range of training & skills, including – process facilitating, public management, partnerships brokering, international development, project management, fundraising, donor relations, intercultural engagement, and business diplomacy. This has afforded him a blended 25 years+ career in the social services and civil society (NGOs) sector globally – where the past 5 years have focused on building social equity and zooming into impact funding/investments.
