Sarah Agbantou 

I founded Design Thinking for Good at PwC to help social enterprises leverage design thinking techniques to scale. I’ve spent the last seven years building or working with startups, incubators and accelerators on social impact initiatives in Europe and Africa. Prior to joining PwC, I was the Head of Expansion at City Pantry, a UK food tech startup, where I used design thinking to build a team and launch a digital service in three months from scratch. I’m passionate about social entrepreneurship and impact investment.

I’m also passionate about citizen-led innovation and have worked extensively on such programmes - designing and managing them as well as providing innovation and product coaching. I’m excited to use Design Thinking for Good!
