Sophie joined Apps for Good in 2013 as part of the Business Development team after completing a four year BA degree at University College London in History and French (with a year spent studying at the Sorbonne in Paris). Whilst at University Sophie had the opportunity to work for a small start-up Benivo (previously FlatClub) and became increasingly excited about how technology can be created and leveraged to improve people’s everyday lives and communities. On finishing University, the opportunity at Apps for Good then perfectly combined Sophie’s already existing passion about education and growing interest in technology. Now after 4.5 years at Apps for Good, Sophie has built and nurtured a number of long-term social impact partnerships with industry partners and large foundations and trusts, enabling Apps for Good’s reach to grow from 6,000 to over 28,000 students per year across the UK. Sophie particularly enjoys developing new products and forging new partnerships with the aim to improve the diversity of Apps for Good’s beneficiaries and in particular gender equality in the wider tech sector. Sophie now looks forward to continuing to deepen Apps for Good’s impact on young people, develop more valuable partnerships for social good and be a positive agent for change, supporting a more diverse talent pipeline into tech and business.
