Shifra got hired off of Twitter by the GP of i2i Ventures, one of Pakistan’s most prominent VC firms, to work on the i2i Insights team (platform/content arm of i2i Ventures). She started off building brain-computer interface projects as a teen, including a 3D-printed RC car that moved forward when concentrated. She was the youngest intern at KPMG Canada, on the cybersecurity team, in high school. From there, she worked on the advanced analytics team at one of Canada’s largest banks, CIBC. Shifra also helped design a public health project in collaboration with the Jigawa State Ministry of Health in Nigeria and a local non-profit. She's worked on special projects with multiple startups in Toronto, where she is based. When not working, you will most likely find Shifra powerlifting.
