A warm welcome to our new BAWE Scotland members

We are delighted to welcome our new members, Karen Shapiro from New York, and Lamiaa Soliman from Cairo. Karen has recently relocated to Scotland and her business is Babes In Petland, a start-up fashion and homeware business with an emphasis on people and their pets.

Lamiaa has recently relocated to the UK and is currently the Director of M&A at ICAS, one of the UK’s leading mental health and well-being platforms. Lamiaa also invests in early-stage companies in the education technology sector, and in retail. She is thinking through her own start-up in the short term. Lamiaa holds an MBA from Harvard Business School.

It was lovely to spend time with Karen and Lamiaa at the Christmas event and we look forward to hearing more about their businesses at the next dinner. Please introduce yourself to them on Linkedin.
