About this Episode

Greetings Glocal Citizens!
This week's guest fully embraces glocal citizenship; she has a place called "home" on three continents.

A Brooklyn native, Tiambi Simms' passion lies in building solutions that matter by diving into customer problems and solving them with modern technology. Her expertise is in creating, scaling, and optimizing products and services that are impactful. She realizes this passion as a business designer, product manager and in her role as a co-founder of social enterprise, SheFarms. As a social entrepreneur her guiding question is how are we going to feed 9.7 Billion people by 2050? This drives her work in the agri-fintech sector, bringing the power of tech to the lives of smallholder farmers, particularly for women. Tiambi's global perspective in management, marketing, business development, product management, fundraising, and entrepreneurship are at the core of her ability to cultivate strong relationships with stakeholders across their value chains, allowing her to connect and grow alongside of them.
