Ajmal Sataar

President of Inspire Nunavut (Canada)

Ajmal is the Founder and President of Inspire Nunavut, an organization that runs a social entrepreneurship training program and accelerator for indigenous youth to challenge the complex problems they face in their remote communities. The initiative is creating some of the first collaborative entrepreneurial ecosystems in Nunavut, where enterprises being created integrate Inuit culture and values, increase community and economic development, and are increasing the community’s standard of living.

Most recently, Ajmal was selected as Co-Chair of Canada's Social Innovation and Social Finance Strategy Co-Creation Steering Group. Ajmal has also founded social enterprises that have supported at-risk youth, marginalized immigrant women, individuals with a mental illness, high school students, homeless people and the recycling of cigarette butts.
