Innovonomics was founded, and is managed by Rizwan Tufail. The impetus for setting up the organization came out of his work as an Edward S. Mason Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, where he brought thought-leadership in innovation, technology, entrepreneurship and policy – based on his experience in this domain as the Regional Director for Microsoft for Africa.
