Hanadi Jabado – Cambridge Judge Business School
A serial entrepreneur herself, she has a strong understanding of the needs of early stage ventures and entrepreneurs.
In 2012, Hanadi was inspiration and the driving force behind the creation of Accelerate Cambridge, enhancing the contribution of Cambridge Judge Business School to the Cambridge entrepreneurial cluster, by providing help, nurture, and support to innovators and entrepreneurs in Cambridge.
She has coined the "sneak outs" phrase, describing IP out of the University of Cambridge being commercialised directly by the inventor. Since its creation, Accelerate Cambridge has supported over a hundred companies and Hanadi has personally been involved in raising 10 million pounds of equity and grant funding for the Accelerate Cambridge startups.
Hanadi sits on the advisory board of several startups at various stages of development and growth and is a director of Pitch@Palace CIC.
