Think Up Interview

January 30, 2012 in Media Updates

A few months ago, I wrote about an interview I did with Saleh Al-Braik’s Think Up organization. Saleh, AKA Twitter’s Fearless In Dubai, had been in town interviewing local entrepreneurs, including the people behind Khaleejesque and 52 Degrees, and had requested to meet with me to talk about Equait. The interview, which you can watch below, has finally been released and is featured on the Think Up homepage.

I’d like to thank Saleh and his team for all that they have done, and to express how grateful I am to everyone that has helped and supported Equait so far, mainly my fellow Equait founder and the other person running this organization, Leanah Al-Awadhi. My Think Up interview was conducted when Equait had just been established and was still a relatively new initiative, long before Leanah joined me and made it the organization that it is today. I’m so grateful to her and my entire team and I’m so proud of what we’ve accomplished so far!

The Equait team!

    There is so much potential to this guy, ignoring all the Is.
    Good going Equait :)

      Thank you for your kind words.

      In reference to your “Is” comment: I was asked a series of questions over the course of an hour-long interview. I had no say in how the video was edited. I spoke about several topics that had nothing to do with my personal backstory or extracurriculars, which for some reason they chose not to include. I agree that the interview makes me come off as a tad egotistical, which, if having known me in real life, you’ll see is not the case at all.

        That’s exactly the reason why I said you have great potential.
        Greatness distills over time and so does the understanding of the ego :)
        A great tool realizes its purpose of existence when it is put to good use, without which it is nothing but useless.
        Make us proud.
