Before coming to Stanford, Amee was a director at Synresins, Kenya’s leading manufacturer of chemical synthetic resins used in the paints, adhesives, and inks industry. She was responsible for helping to identify, develop, and launch new products for the growing East African market. Amee also consulted for Msingi, whose mission is assisting East African growth industries in realizing their potential by supporting technology transfer into these industries. She helped to identify these high-potential industries and develop private-sector-focused interventions. Previously, Amee helped set up London startup Pavegen, whose paving technology converts the kinetic energy from footsteps into electricity. As head of business development, she helped sell the technology to Pavegen’s first key clients and develop global distribution channels.
