Andrea Stykket

My passion for purpose-driven organisations started over a decade ago when I dropped out of secondary school to set up a social enterprise with a group of friends, an initiative that eventually became the NABIO foundation.

Since then, I have been privileged to have initiated, co-founded, worked in, and consulted a range of social start-ups and nonprofits. Along the journey, I have picked up a diverse skillset: initiating and implementing projects, managing teams, coding web-platforms, writing grant proposals, connecting with partners, creating graphic design and motion graphics, and managing databases.

I am driven by the process of discovering problems, building user-driven solutions, and pushing ideas into impact. I enjoy the entrepreneurial role as much as being a champion and supporter of others working for change. Thus, I am thrilled when I get the opportunity to lead workshops and training programmes to share my experiences.

I’m currently studying for an MPhil in Development Studies at Oxford University, supported by Aker Scholarship, to compliment my BA in marketing. I strongly believe that bridging academic theory with practice bring ubiquotous value for both domains.
