Teuta Oruçi’s remarkable journey from asylum seeker to successful finance leader and cleantech entrepreneur
It’s hard not to be inspired by the story of Teuta Oruçi FCCA. After unexpectedly finding herself an asylum seeker in the UK, she studied for her ACCA Qualification at night school and went on to have a flourishing career in financial services. Today she’s the founder of Malta-based strategy consultancy Cleantech360, a role she has been juggling with being global CFO of recycling social enterprise Plastic Bank since January 2022.
Oruçi founded Cleantech360 in 2019, three years after moving to Malta. Always passionate about sustainability, she saw an opportunity to launch a business that would help build a clean technology ecosystem by matching startups in the sector with investors and other relevant partners.
