About Ahmed

Currently, I am looking forward to build something new in the food-tech space. Reach out if you are interested to know more!

Started my career combining business and technology. While studying computer engineering, I saw a business opportunity and built a real estate agency around it in Cairo, Egypt. After 1.5 years, the agency merged with an existing construction company to market their portfolio assets.

Additionally, I worked for c. 2 years in Germany at an AI research lab "owned by Siemens" to develop vision-based reinforcement learning algorithms.

Moreover, I studied my 2nd master's in Strategy & Organizational Design in Frankfurt and combined it with MBA classes from Columbia Business School in New York.

Over the past couple of years, I was fortunate to develop more structured business understanding by working as strategy consultant in a renowned consulting firm and an international investment bank in area of M&A.

As I have always been entrepreneurial enthusiast, I consulted few startups on the side in NY, Paris and Berlin in different areas from strategy, go-to-market, pitching and fundraising, as well as new product development.
