Studying Business Innovation at Birkbeck: building innovation ecosystems

Leila Kehl is one of our alumni who works as a Plug and Play Tech Center manager in Silicon Valley. Leila found her first spark in innovation when she was in her former career. She found herself fascinated by the process of how people turn an idea from a piece of paper into running an actual business. She became curious about innovation and all the concepts behind it. After finishing her study at Birkbeck, she moved to the US. She now runs an innovation accelerator program for international entrepreneurs to launch businesses in the US, and regards innovation as a central part of her life.
