I’m a social entrepreneur and development specialist with over eight years of experience in structuring, financing, and implementation of innovative and large-scale impact programs for international charities, development agencies, foundations and the private sector in the field of economic development. These investments have positively impacted hundreds of thousands of lives through job creation and increased incomes. I’m the founder iLab and Actig GEN Somalia/land managing director. I’m currently focusing on building an ecosystem for large-scale job creation, foster entrepreneurship, access to capital and markets, design innovative policy influencing strategies and experiment with new methods of youth employment. Also advocate for the participation of young people in economic development, thus contributing to the attainment of several Sustainable Development Goals to transform societies.
