Judith Amar

Start Labs manager
Start Network

Judith has been with the Start Network since January 2018, leading a team focusing on designing and piloting innovative approaches to humanitarian financing. She currently oversees a range of initiatives which aim to provide NGOs with more rapid and predictable funding to respond to humanitarian crises earlier, before lives have been lost, livelihoods destroyed, and development gains undermined.

Judith has been working in the humanitarian sector for 8 years as a cashtransfer specialist, working with a range of innovative payment systems, and in operational roles. She has supported humanitarian responses in rapid onset, slow onset and protracted contexts across West Africa, the Middle East and Asia.

She started off her career in the private sector, working for KPMG and PwC as an external auditor, and recently completed a Graduate Certificate in Humanitarian Leadership.
