Niraj has been at Spacehive – a crowdfunding platform for civic projects - since its inception. During his stint he has worked in almost every part of Spacehive, and now grows the community of Spacehive users – from cities to businesses to local people trying to shape their communities. In his spare time, he is a local councillor in Harrow, with a specific focus on engagement & innovation. This has given him a good understanding of local government and the challenges & opportunities they face, and allowed him to develop our partnerships in cities accordingly. He is always looking for ways to give people power and opportunities, and has a keen eye for projects that push the boundaries or make a big impact in communities.
