Vouch for them.

Kwadwo A. Poku
We worked together  •  Recruitment and Alumni Manager, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
As the recruitment and alumni manager for the Legatum Fellowship at MIT, where Zyad is a Fellow, I can attest to his entrepreneurial skills. ... I was impressed with his ability to spot opportunities, and with drive and a good dose of interpersonal skills, work on turning that opportunity into a reality. When Zyad hits a roadblock while pursuing a dream, he doesn't stop. He may alter his vision, the end product, or the process of getting to his vision, but he doesn't give up. He finds a way to resolve the issue. In his current startup idea of working with artisans in Morocco, one of the challenges he's facing is identifying some key individuals who may be able to help him gain access to certain markets. Zyad has figured out that these individuals and organizations may not necessarily be in the artisan sector. He's been creative in his thinking and has reached out to people outside the artisan sector, but who still have some relation to the arts, and could be of tremendous help. To me, this is a sign for a great entrepreneur. One who is creative and can connect the dots, even if they are not as apparent.
