Emily Gilmour

Program and Executive Support Officer, NEXT Canada

Emily’s experience and passion for entrepreneurship led her to NEXT Canada from the UK, where she has taken on a dual role developing the NextED program and providing executive support for our CEO.

Prior to NEXT Canada, Emily worked as a Program Manager for a range of non-profit organizations, including leading on a national social entrepreneurship program and managing a government-led work readiness initiative. Emily has been part of the entrepreneurship community in the UK as both a founder and a team member of a variety of startups. As a result, she is looking forward to getting stuck into the Canadian entrepreneurial ecosystem.

Emily has a Master of Science with Distinction from University College London. In her free time she is working on her travel startup and exploring her new city of Toronto.
