Ahmad moved to Silicon Valley to dive into the world of tech and social impact.

He is now Head of Business Development at Tribal Credit, an early-stage AI fintech startup backed by leading venture firms building financial solutions to serve emerging markets.

In conjunction, he was appointed as the Chief of Staff at TechWadi to lead multiple initiatives with MENA countries focused on building their tech ecosystems, the latest being launching a conference and acceleration program with the World Bank in Amman under the patronage of the Royal Family.

This combination of MENA development work and Silicon Valley startup experience lead him to launch Valve VC, an SF based fund that invests in MENA startups.

He was joined by top VCs with a track record like Facebook, Uber, and Twitter.

Before joining the startup scene, Ahmad was the youngest Marketing Manager for the largest optical technology company in the world where he worked on the iPhone X facial recognition technologies.

After earning his Bachelor's degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the American University of Beirut, he worked at General Electric early on after graduating.

In his free time, Ahmad organizes monthly private events that bring together like-minded young founders, VCs, and executives in San Francisco.
