Head of Innovation Projects World Food Programme - Innovation Accelerator

Nicola Holden

My mission is to foster collaborative, accelerated, creative problem-solving - to create a positive future for humanity and the planet. Being an agent for change is the core thing that drives me each day. My tools include circular design, speculative design, lean start-up, agile, design-thinking and human-centred design (life-centred design). Currently, I am Head of Innovation Projects at the United Nations World Food Programme Innovation Accelerator. We work with startups and partner organizations such as The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Google to scale innovation to disrupt global hunger. We have the ambitious goal to end world hunger by 2030.
