Anna Heckenlively is Manager, Entrepreneurial Engagement at The B Team, on the Global Community & Development team.  She joined The B Team in early 2013 as a founding staff member and has since played a variety of roles, with her diverse background in sustainability, strategic partnership development, stakeholder management, communications and production.  

In her current cross-cutting role, she leads “Born B”, a program focused on supporting entrepreneurs in adopting purpose-driven business models from the start and creating an enabling environment globally for them to scale and succeed, as well as The B Team’s broader efforts to engage entrepreneurs in our core Initiatives.

Prior to The B Team, Anna worked for a number of environmentally-focused organisations, most recently the Carbon War Room, a not-for-profit focused on accelerating the adoption of business solutions that reduce carbon emissions at gigaton scale and advance the low-carbon economy.

A native Northern Californian now based in New York City, Anna graduated from the University of Southern California with degrees in Public Policy, Planning & Management, with a focus on sustainable development, and a minor in Business Administration.
