Nujhat Bashir is an Innovation Management Advisor with the Build in Canada Innovation Program (BCIP), which helps innovative Canadian entrepreneurs take their cutting-edge products from the lab to the marketplace.

As part of this role, Nujhat supports innovators looking to qualify or are qualified into the Program by liaising on their behalf with federal testing departments to help set up testing arrangements for their innovations. She manages a range of innovations in her portfolio from the environmental, real property and health spaces and engages extensively with strategic partners and stakeholders in those areas.

Previously, Nujhat worked to help launch the pilot Canadian Innovation Commercialization Program (former BCIP) and also at the Embassy of Canada in Washington D.C. where she supported and provided commercial policy advice to the Science, Technology and Innovation Division and to Canadian businesses that were looking to do business in the U.S.
