Elena Helmy

Senior Manager, Investments

I look after Virgin Unite’s global grants and social investments portfolio, including our investments in healthcare, clean energy, sustainable farming, and entrepreneurship support. I have worked in the impact space since 2010, and have had the privilege to support many incredible innovators and leaders who passionately and relentlessly develop and iterate systemic solutions to global challenges. In my previous life, I was a change management consultant with PwC and have spent six years living and working in East Africa. I have a degree in International Economics and an MBA from Said Business School, University of Oxford.

I love what I do because I thrive on enabling positive change at scale. At Virgin Unite, I am fortunate to be able to combine my business skills with a sense of boundless possibility and excitement about the global future my work is helping to shape.
