I'm working on side projects that I'm passionate about hoping that I could take them full time once the prototype phase shows positive demad
Dr. Samer is known for having transformed his family business from a small manufacturing company to a high tech group with 6 factories aroun ... d the world specialising in composites (i.e. trains, buses). He's been advising some key officials such as HRH the Crown Prince of Bahrain and the CE of Bahrain Economic Development Board. Thanks to his advice, he helped me validate some opportunities and how to plan next steps thinking globally in a smart way. I know he's been helping other tech startups as well.
