Sam Staincliffe

Co-founder and CTO, Uplift 360
She is a specialist in material science, defence and sustainability - not the most common collective of skill sets. She’s held senior strategic roles in both defence and humanitarian assistance organisations including the Ministry of Defence and the American Red Cross. With experience in disaster response, technology exploitation, and surveillance, she’s seen first-hand the brutal effects of global warming. Now she’s on a mission to support the defence sector in adopting circularity to combat climate change.
