Raseel Sehmi

ATB Innovation
Director, Global Partnerships & Business Development
Raseel is a senior business leader and citizen of the world. She has lived in seven countries, and as a result of her exposure she champions local-global connections and solidarity. Her passions lie in the intersecting worlds of technology, business, international development and higher human consciousness – and in the social impact and innovation created at the intersection.

Her work experience is as diverse as her upbringing. Over the last decade she has led business development and partnerships for ATB's Innovation Lab, Finger Food Advanced Tech Group and Hootsuite. At BC Tech she played a key role in shaping policy outcomes across federal and provincial governments to advance BC's tech sector. As a humanitarian, Raseel has also worked with UNICEF, UNDP and the Aga Khan Foundation, and she led the Vancouver chapter of Acumen Fund.

She is an alumni of the Governor General’s Leadership Program, a mentor to new immigrants and young women, an investor and an engaged member of her communities. She holds a BA in Political Science & Sociology from UBC, and an MSc in IR/Development Studies from SOAS University of London.
