GW Grad Helps Others Through Entrepreneurship
Recent GW graduate Anas Mheir Alsaadi had never even heard the word “entrepreneurship” until 2020 when he assisted a friend in launching a startup, but it quickly became a passion for him once he realized it could be a means to helping others.
“I really like the idea of entrepreneurship because it’s one of the ways that you can actually change the world and improve the world, because it’s about problem solving,” Alsaadi said. “So, you find the problem, and then use entrepreneurship to find the solution and make a solution out of nothing.”
He founded the GW Entrepreneurship Club as a place for all innovators to create, learn and network, and now that he’s graduated, he plans on teaching the entrepreneurship skills he’s learned at GW to people back home in Dubai.
