Nuha Siddiqui

CEO & Co-Founder, erthos


As the CEO & Co-Founder of erthos, Nuha is on a mission to build a new standard for sustainable materials that put our earth first.

Nuha founded erthos while still completing her Business & Environmental Economics degree at the University of Toronto (Rotman). During her time at UofT, she actively contributed to the growth of young leaders in Canada. Under her leadership, Enactus, a student-run social innovation organization, grew from 7 to 70 members and her efforts were recognized by HSBC with the 2017 Woman Leader of Tomorrow Award. When her peers headed off to full-time jobs after graduation, she decided to go full-speed with erthos, scaling the company to a team of 20, raising over $7.3M and launching global manufacturing pilots to tackle the issue worldwide.

As an entrepreneur in an emerging technology space, Nuha plays an active role in supporting the development of the diverse innovation ecosystem in Canada. From serving as an advisor to National technology accelerators like NEXT Canada, to mentoring young entrepreneurs and women in STEM, she is dedicated towards supporting next generation leaders who are collectively working together to create a positive impact on this planet.

Nuha’s work in building erthos has been recognized globally, and the rapid expansion of erthos as one of Canada’s fastest growing cleantech companies, was recently awarded by Bay Street Bull 30x30.
