Dear Friends,

We at Street Business School are so very pleased to welcome Deepti Mathew as our new Chief Executive Officer!

Deepti brings over 24 years of experience helping leading organizations build the mindsets, systems, and processes necessary to achieve scale and impact. Deepti is the ideal person to lead SBS in the next chapter for three important reasons:

1. SBS is poised to grow tremendously in the next five years, and Deepti brings deep experience leading this kind of growth, both from her background as a management consultant, but also as a leader with NGOs who are rapidly scaling.

2. Deepti has a strong conviction that women are key to changing the world and has centered women in her academic studies, as well as her organizational strategies.

3. As a woman from the Global South who is currently based in Dakar, Senegal, Deepti has the lived experience to ground SBS’ work in the needs of the people we serve.

Deepti will transition into her role with SBS in January. Devin will work to thoughtfully onboard Deepti throughout the month, ensuring a smooth transition. Devin will then take on the role of SBS Board Member Emeritus, remaining deeply engaged in the organization she founded and loves.

We are all incredibly excited to welcome Deepti to the team. Onward to reach 1 million women!

Devin, Barbara, and the entire SBS Team and Board of Director



Deepti was born in India and moved to Africa as a young girl. She lived in Tanzania and Cameroon for her formative years, before moving back to India to finish her schooling.

Deepti earned an MBA from the Xavier Institute of Management and has consulted with organizations like Capgemini and Accenture, helping manage risk, reduce costs, and pursue strategic growth.

Recognizing the importance of engaging women to create lasting change, Deepti pursued her Master’s Degree in Gender Studies at the London School of Economics and is a passionate advocate for women’s empowerment.

In the past eight years, Deepti has worked with NGOs and social enterprises that are rapidly scaling their operations. In her most recent role as Managing Director of MyAgro, Deepti helped design and build the supply chain capability to serve a million mostly women farmers every year and raised over $10,000,000 annually.
