Carina Cunha is the Founder and Creator of Nosy. Her background is just as diverse and as innovative as Nosy itself.
Originally from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She has lived in over 4 continents and 10 cities spanning from San Francisco to Shanghai.
Carina holds a bachelor's degree with a double major in Economics and Political Science from Columbia University.
Carina also holds a PgD in Differential Psychology with a focus on personality and behaviour from the University of Edinburgh.
Currently living in London, where before founding Nosy, Carina was the UK Managing Director for an EdTech Company, Crimson Education. She helped launch and grow the business across Europe achieving millions in ARR and over 150% YoY growth.
Prior to working at Crimson, Carina was a Corporate Strategist for JPMorgan’s Private Bank helping the company restructure its sales and distribution model to adapt to regulatory changes like MiFID II and Brexit.
Before moving to the UK, Carina was a Strategy Consultant with Accenture in New York City working on a number of projects across the United States. Some of her projects included the spin-off and divestiture of Pfizer Animal Health, audit of data retained by the New York Stock Exchange during invade Wall Street Protests, and the merge of the Prime Brokerage unit of Bank of America with BNP Paribas.
During her teenage years and early twenties, Carina was a fashion model with Elite Modeling agency, alongside a number of other agencies across the world. She has been featured in some of the industries most regarded shows and publications including Rio de Janeiro’s Fashion Week and Vogue.
Nosy launched in 2020, but the concept of the product had been in the works for years. Every new city that Carina moved to, her problem would still be the same: she did not have an effective and convenient way of protecting herself from dirty air when commuting to work or walking around busy cities, now she does.
