Belinda Li

- Founder / Chief Consultant

M.B.A. - University of Chicago Booth School of Business | Ph.D. in Medical Physics - University of London | B.A. in Physics - Oxford University My passion for building a better tomorrow and creating a positive impact in the world brought me on a 20+ year journey from medical physics, to business consulting, non-profit administration, and sustainability program management, across the private, public, non-profit, and academic sectors. This journey has enriched my data-driven strategic, research, and analytical skills; proven my project management acumen; and given me the opportunities to help clients from different sectors solve some of their most pressing challenges.
I currently serve as Treasurer of the Board at the Social Enterprise Alliance Chicago Chapter, Treasurer of the Board at the Illinois Environment Council, and an Advisory Committee Member of Accelerate 77.
