Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered.
Currently, I am an Ashoka fellow in the field of education enhancement, been working in the science communication field since 2007. While my main specialization is trying to create the simplest games and activities to deliver science by sensing and relating rather than dry studying, I as well helped in the conduction of several ideation camps in Egypt as part of an entrepreneurial training. Now, I am the founder and partner in CORD, a company for productive Science communication. Also, Co-founder of Science Crafts (a specialized company in kids Science communication). I was featured as a public speaker and science communicator in several events in Egypt and abroad through an international network that was formed over the years. My work as a social entrepreneur, was featured in many international events and networks in different countries in Europe and the Gulf region. I also became an MIT Pan Arab Alumni, a Synergos Fellow and a finalist in Forbs 30 under 30.
Beyond your existing team, who else are you working with to achieve your objectives, eg partners, advisors, mentors?
To be frank, this is much more than being mentioned here in one field, however; I confidently can say that I was blessed with an amazing network of mentors, advisors and partners. In Egypt, I have participated in many social entrepreneurship programs, leading to the introduction of an elite and respectful community of investors and entrepreneurship mentors. And through the network of Ashoka and MIT Pan Arab enterprise competition, I was introduced to more of a global perspective. Also, there is CORD Alumni, consisted of the people who once worked or volunteered in CORD since 2007, most of which are now in either technical or business positions now in Egypt and Gulf region.
