TechWadi Annual Forum 2015: Zafer Younis


TechWadi is the leading non-profit organization building bridges between Silicon Valley and the MENA region. This year, the TechWadi Annual Forum will be held on September 26-27 in Silicon Valley. Attendees will gain insight from leading entrepreneurs on topics such as Arab success stories from Silicon Valley, investing in MENA and Iran’s rising tech ecosystem and implications for the broader MENA region.

One of the speakers at this year’s TechWadi Annual Forum is Zafer Younis. Zafer holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Finance from the London School of Economics as well as another bachelor’s degree in Engineering from the University College London.

Today, he is the Co-Founder and CEO of The Online Project, a company that develops and executes social media strategies for Fortune 500 companies and high profile organizations operating in the Middle East and North Africa. He is also a mentor at Oasis500, AstroLabs, and Flat6Labs.
