Advisory Board

Sarah Ronald

Sarah Ronald is an award-winning entrepreneur, founder of strategic design firm Nile, founding partner of two tech companies (Pawprint and Exizent) and an investor in numerous early-stage companies. She has been involved in redesigning the currency banknotes for two countries, launched the first emergency cash service in Europe, and the digitisation of the world’s largest insurance marketplace. Her background is in human-computer interaction and behavioural psychology, and her interests lie in working within regulated environments as these are often the most challenging spaces to create new products, services and changes in human behaviour. She has served as a digital adviser to the UK Government and is an advisory board member for the Scottish Government's Technology Ecosystem review, which is chaired by Cabinet Minister Kate Forbes. Sarah is married with two big kids, two little kids and a stubborn French bulldog. She’s a keen skier and many moons ago played touch rugby for Scotland.
