Hi everyone! I am Iynna Halilou, Global Programs Manager at Entrepreneurs Roundtable Accelerator (ERA), New York’s leading technology accelerator and seed VC. We have invested in 230+ start-ups since launching in 2011. In my capacity, I lead our global portfolio where I work with startups and scaleups across all continents to enter and successfully scale in the US market. Prior to ERA, I was the Head of Programs for Muhammad Yunus’ social impact accelerator, the cofounder and COO at Enza Academy, a tech startup providing STEM education to Black and Latinx high school students. I started my career at the United Nations where I worked for the Under Secretary General for Global Communications. I have a BA from Durham University (UK), a Master in International Development from NYU. I am originally from Cameroon and Madagascar (a proud African product), and also lived in Paris, London, Dakar and Moscow. Ask me anything about building early stage startups, fundraising, investing, breaking into VC, tech in Africa and more!
