Co-Founder & Managing Director at Forward·Inc
Inspired changemaker helping newcomers pursue their entrepreneurial dreams
Everyone deserves access to opportunities. For me personally, what motivates me is seeing people with a refugee background win and being successful against all odds. I am on a daily basis inspired by their resilience and strength to start a business from scratch in a new environment. If some of the work of Forward·Inc can be tied back to newcomers becoming economically independent and being able to take their lives into their own hands again, then what we do has value and I will give it my best to grow our reach and support more people everyday.
