Anna Kayal

Executive Director

Anna has strategic business experience with a background in the private as well as the public sector. She spent over a decade in the banking industry and more specifically within Swedish bank SEB, where she primarily worked within the realm of strategic business development as well as with marketing and brand management.

Following her years in banking, Anna worked briefly as a consultant supporting organisations developing entrepreneurship programmes for immigrants and refugees, before entering the public sector. As a business developer at Botkyrka Municipality outside of Stockholm, Anna continued her work with entrepreneurship through partnerships that were aimed at strengthening the skills and business advice to aspiring entrepreneurs as well as empowering young people with the tools needed to solve local challenges through entrepreneurship.

Anna completed a BA degree in International Business in the US and with a father from Syria, she also spent eight years of her adolescence in Aleppo. She’s been able to see the cultural challenges and social inequalities that people in many parts of the world are struggling with, and she’s passionate about empowering individuals with skills and tools to create positive change.
