Alix Linaker

Business Development Lead

Alix is the CityStudio Business Development Lead, a role that was created to elevate and grow our network across the country. She is a high-level thinker and creator, and is responsible for designing, launching, and maintaining the national division of our Global Sharing. 

Alix recently completed her Master’s of Global Business, in which she fortified her knowledge of collaborations between diverse stakeholders. She honed her ability to work with individuals and groups from a broad range of environments, regardless of their origins of difference being individual, cross-sectoral, intercultural, or cross-border. She has several years of experience conducting social enterprise feasibility studies, as well as coordinating collective impact and network-based initiatives. Her curiosity about the intersection of higher education and social innovation led her to work at several post-secondary institutions. Alix co-chaired a volunteer chapter of Acumen, an impact investing non-profit that invests in social entrepreneurs tackling global poverty. She holds a BBA Hons. from Simon Fraser University, as well as Community Economic Development and Kinesiology Certificates.

When Alix is not working in social enterprise, she dabbles in scenic and portrait photography. On the weekend she can be found hiking in the mountains with her dog, Hershey.
