What are the top reasons you joined TechUnited? How can you help other members, and how can other members help you?
Sharing my tech innovations with like minded peers, exposure and introductions to advisors and investors.
What motivated you to start your company or organization and how do you differentiate yourself from the competition?
With the raising of Zoom, Tiktok, Cameo, Vlogs, and many other apps that are video content-driven, people are either watching video content or producing it, sharing video experiences about a product or service have more value, portraying storytelling content that’s more informative and interesting to watch than cats and dogs or dancing steps, The collective opinions of customers can help improve products or services and be the pulse that enterprise brands count on to test market response on a larger scale than the limited test groups that are hired in a private setting, and for small businesses, it’s the word of mouth that helps spread visual viral exposure that’s needed to help growth.
What new technology are you excited about? And how do you stay innovative in your role?
EV companies and the growth of clean energy trends. However, I am not excited about The Metaverse, Crypto, or NFTs.
What is that one piece of advice you would share with other entrepreneurship enthusiasts in the community?
Serial entrepreneurs are prophets inspired to lead the way for others to follow, so when you get the calling, it’s fate, not a choice.
1. Know enough about the industry you are after
2. Study competition well
3. Make your product or service stand out
4. Don’t give up no matter how long the journey is
What’s your go-to conversation starter or #1 fun fact about your company or career?
I was born and raised in Egypt, I started DJing when I was 16 years old, it’s what led me to get into hospitality college. My career in hospitality and entertainment as a DJ gave me a lot of insight from an early age about venue operation, marketing, recreation & entertainment science. My passion for venue operation, entertainment and exposure to the internet and tech aligned together and shaped my knowledge and logic to this day.
