Mentorship motivation

  • I want to give back to the startup ecosystem and entrepreneurs coming up
  • I want to make new connections for myself and/or the organization I represent

My goal to spread concepts of entrepreneurship in poor areas in Egypt. focus is helping students and refugees understand how to apply entrepreneurship based on the SDG’s within their graduation projects and local projects for refugees so that they can obtain a financial resource that will ensure their livelihood.

I seek to leave impact. Currently, I have a virtual community includes +3,000 entrepreneurs from Middle east. Through these community, we work to exchange experiences, meetups, partnerships while also providing support to these students and refugees in securing the funding and investment necessary to realize their innovative ideas.

So, I want to give back to the startup ecosystem and entrepreneurs coming up, I have faced many challenges and difficulties in my journey, and had it not been for the help of my advisors, I would not have succeeded. My first startup company failed, and after that I worked in my advisor’s company to gain experience that allowed me to build my company again.
