Christian Booty, Education & Workforce Partnerships Manager

I was born and raised in the UK with a short stint living in Spain. After lots of adventures, including high school basketball dreams, I have since become a naturalized citizen of the United States. I thoroughly enjoyed my academic career here in the US and am excited to help promote STEM careers, particularly amongst minorities.

I have 10+ years of experience in business/economic development on both sides of the Atlantic, including tenure with the Virginia Economic Development Partnership. I have been privileged to work with companies small and large, from many different countries and in a variety of industries. I look forward to connecting with the many education partners across the country.

Most recently, I have performed more entrepreneurial roles, including co-founding a business in the UK. I enjoy the energy and drive that comes with a start-up environment and I hope to continue that ethos with Couragion. I look forward to furthering Couragion’s mission by helping make STEM careers accessible to all.
