Dr. Melissa Sassi

CEO & Co-Founder
Skills Hustle

I have spent my career at the intersection of tech, education, economic development, social impact, startups, sustainability.

I've visited 60 countries, giving me direct exposure to local challenges & opportunities for achieving the SDGs. I've also done 2 stints on Wall Street at BlackRock & Goldman Sachs.

Doctoral thesis: role digital inclusion plays to solve the SDGs.

WIP books: (1) people of impact making the world a better place & (2) how-to guide for hackathons.

I left big tech to focus on driving societal change & finally being a real entrepreneur!
