Tigran Sogomonian

Programme Officer Team: Social innovation and investment

Tigran is a Programme Officer with the Innovation & Investment team at The Young Foundation. He previously worked as a research assistant on the Brexit and Big Social Data project with the University of Reading, analysing the online discourse surrounding the 2016 EU Referendum and the identity-systems forged by the two opposing camps in the Brexit debate.

With The Young Foundation’s research team he has worked on Flipping the Coin: the two sides of Community Wealth in England and has also supported our housing accelerator Reimagining Rent.

He is passionate about how social data can go hand-in-hand with innovation to address inequalities in communities.

Tigran is currently working on the Inclusive Economy Partnership’s scale-up programme BOOST, helping social enterprises drive change across the UK by forming partnerships across government, civil society and business.
