Words from Our Clients
This is Why We Do What We Do
Ahmed is an exceptional entrepreneurship mentor and coach. We were part of a program he led in Muscat/Oman in which we learnt in 5 days what would take us years in entrepreneurship. These valuable courses increase the chances of success for startups. Hence, as a startup Founder and CEO, I strongly recommend Ahmed, he is a LEGEND!

Thank you, Ahmed, for the wonderful week at Boot Camp Muscat in Oman Tech Fund. I can’t describe how important this week was for me as I learned in a week more than what I learned in a year in the university! Your methods of delivering the information are unforgettable and you from all my teachers all my life managed to make me pitch like a pro!
Ahmed led our acceleration program at Turn8. His knowledge and enthusiasm helped us a) make a pivot in our business model, b) grow our revenue by 200% and, c) deliver an outstanding pitch at demo day. We have been very fortunate to work with him for 6 months and he will remain a close friend and supporter of Visage.
Ahmed really practices what he preaches. It has been truly rewarding to work with him and to learn from him along the way. Ahmed is happy to share his vast knowledge from his entrepreneurship past. He knows the startup world well and shows you how to make your company shine over the competitors when dealing with investors, partners and customers.
Social Media Solutions,
Ahmed is a non-forgettable person! His way of empowering and energizing youth to pursue and face the real world in businesses is what we are missing and been given by him!
Working alongside with Ahmed makes you feel great! His commitment and experiences in establishing startups and delivering the real knowledge that it’s not written in most of the business books is what makes Ahmed astonishing.
Hands down to the best entrepreneurship instructor I have come across. His lectures at QBIC where both inspiring and challenging. Extremely dedicated to his craft and a natural leader. The experience he creates is unparalleled.
The training with Mr. Ahmed was brilliant and masterful. Everything was radiant and full of excitement. Starting with the music to the tone of voice and ending with the most beneficial and incredible tips and advices presented to us in a vivid meaningful way. I truly believe that his advices were a key factor that helped me to become one of the winners in TIP Summit 2020.
Ahmed is an “No-Talk All-Action” type of leader, actually this is the Slogan of his center, KAUST Entrepreneurship Center. Ahmed is an outstanding creative leader, who thinks of excellent ideas/programs and supervises the execution of these ideas (which is a rare quality). He did very well in integrating the Entrepreneurship Center with the academic side of KAUST, making it an integral component of the university. His genuine understanding of Saudi local cultures and traditions coupled with world-class mind-set, knowledge and expertise enable him to make a significant change in the entrepreneurial mindset in the Kingdom, and also enable him to help in developing the next generation of successful entrepreneurs and business leaders in the Kingdom.

It’s been a pleasure working with Ahmed and having him as mentor during the Turn8 program. His ability to give quality feedback and see the long-term value proposition for every company is impressive. But above all, he is the kind of human being that knows how to make you feel good in any situation and his positive mindset is contagious.
Ahmed is a moving business school, I have learnt a lot from him, he is sincere about his contribution to anyone, he will give all what he knows to whoever asks for it, glad to have met you coach.
Ahmed has great entrepreneurial knowledge, he was a mentor for me during the Market Access, a project of Dubai Chamber of Commerce. I got a lot quality advices from his side, he shared great ideas with me and I used them because he is a resourceful individual with extensive experience in business consultancy and public speaking.
We worked with Next Arabia to develop a feasibility study for a customized oil and gas corporate incubator with a multimillion dollar fund. The outcome was a masterpiece business plan to successfully implement the corporate fund and incubation model targeting worldwide technology startups.
It’s always a pleasure to work with Ahmed. He has a personable style, a huge amount of calm charisma, and his excellent understanding of the business world and its challenges is impressive. A lot of people talk about innovation but not only does he welcome disruptive ideas – he loves them! He has a very smart and highly agile way of thinking and working. Ahmed is highly skilled in the art of inspiring, of empowering innovators and entrepreneurs – he really knows how to bring out the best in people – to push them gently but hard enough for them to achieve their goals, preparing them for the real world of business. I look forward to working with Ahmed, my colleague and friend, again in the future
