Nataliey, Business Management and Education
Nataliey is the Chief of Staff of Uganda’s Simba Group, a conglomerate of companies spanning the hospitality, energy, telecom, and real estate sectors, as well as a foundation which she oversees the operations of.
She has been recognised amongst Africa’s brightest young achievers by Forbes “30 Under 30”, and the World Economic Forum named her one of the Top 5 African Innovators.
"The experience and knowledge I gained from my combined honours degree was second to none. I was able to study Japanese and astrology alongside my main studies and I learnt about different educational experiences in developing countries - which really helped me when I started my career".
After graduating from Keele, Nataliey attended the Hult Business School in San Francisco where she completed an MSc in Social Entrepreneurship. During this time she co-founded the concept for Musana Carts – a business that creates solar-powered street vending carts designed for micro-entrepreneurs across Uganda. Musana Carts has since partnered with Coca-Cola, The Rockefeller Foundation, Mastercard Foundation and Ideo.org.
After working with young women in urban and rural Uganda, Nataliey launched an initiative called ‘HER’, an online community programme where young women in business are equipped with both business and life skills that are designed to help them grow in their businesses and life.
