CPO / Co Founder, Qualis Flow
Jade Cohen is an environmental scientist, and Co-Founder and CPO of Qualis Flow, a construction tech company committed to reducing carbon in construction. After graduating from the University of Southampton in 2016, with a first-class Master's degree in Sustainable Environmental Management, she jumped straight into the construction industry. After working on two of Europe's largest infrastructure projects Jade created Qualis Flow in 2018 alongside industry peer Brittany Harris. Taking her experience in the industry into the tech domain, Jade is responsible for the entire Qualis Flow product strategy and roadmap. She bridges the AI, software and civil engineering worlds to ensure that Qualis Flow supports the industry through more intelligent design and build processes. Jade champions promoting awareness, encouraging new ideas and taking action to work towards a more sustainable construction industry. As part of her commitment to this cause, she sits on several advisory panels including for ZERO Construct, UK Green Building Council and the Climate Action Group with the Supply Chain Sustainability School. In her spare time, Jade enjoys spending time brushing up on her Brazilian Portuguese, and continuing to explore and immerse herself in new cities and cultures. Alongside her dedication to reducing carbon in construction and creating a more sustainable future, Jade actively engages new and diverse talent in the industry through ongoing mentoring and internship programmes with the likes of the University of Bristol, University of Southampton Future Worlds and InvestIN Education. In her role as CPO, Jade goes out of her way to foster engagement with new industry talent, and provides a platform for voices that may otherwise be unheard. Jade has a natural ability to inspire others; through her drive, knowledge, approachability and by modelling an effective and ethical way to do business.
