Yasmine Mustafa is a social entrepreneur fueled by a passion to leverage technology for good. She’s the CEO of ROAR for Good, a certified B-corp aimed at reducing assaults against women using smart safety wearables and empathy education. Before that, she founded and sold her first company to a prominent content marketing firm in Silicon Valley.
Yasmine brought Girl Develop It to Philadelphia, a non-profit providing affordable opportunities for women interested in learning software development. In addition, she sits on the board of Coded by Kids, a non-profit organization committed to providing free tech education to inner city youth.
Due to challenges she experienced migrating to the United States as a refugee and discovering she was undocumented, Yasmine is also a champion for immigrants. Her “Birth Lottery” TEDx Philadelphia talk highlights the challenges (and opportunities) inherent in each life.
BBC selected Yasmine as one of it’s 100 Women of 2016 due to her work in empowering women. She was also recognized as Upstart 100’s most dynamic people shaping business, Philadelphia Magazine’s Top 20 Best Philadelphian’s.
