Explore. Experience. Share.

Tony coaches and mentors inventors and entrepreneurs when they are about to create, develop, and commercialize their ideas.

It is at AUB where he learned to become an intrapreneur. He founded the entrepreneurship initiative at the Suliman S. Olayan School of Business, served on more than ten key committees, and introduced entrepreneurship to the university culture. He also co-directed the Darwazah Center for Innovation Management & Entrepreneurship. 

Most of his career has been at the intersection of technology, education, and business, overarched with an entrepreneurship theme. Tony launched several initiatives, projects, and startups, served on boards of companies, and seen his share of successes between his falls.
