I currently work in the Entreprenurship Center in King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), I lead the accelerator program Taqadam, which is a university kingdom wide program with a portfolio of 30 tech, consumer and enterprise focused startups with a total fund of 1.2 million dollars.
Moreover, I co-lead our innovation programs with the corporate clients with my partner in crime, I also now and then just happen to train in Innovation and Design Thinking, while trying to coach a mentor a brilliant group of university Agents (sounds cooler than ambassadors doesn’t it?) that hopefully would grow to shape the future of our young aspiring leaders.
Keeping busy so much that writing here has become a necessity, note that I would write posts in English and others in Arabic, at some point I might try to translate them to both languages, but no promises!
Enjoy the read, and get in touch, I would love to hear your thoughts: ArwaAshafi@gmail.com
