Social innovation enthusiast raised in Cairo!
After having grown up in Egypt, Germany and the UK, Hesham finally graduated from the German school in Cairo and moved to Berlin in 2012. He attended universities in Germany, Greece and Spain, and graduated with an MSc in innovation and entrepreneurship. He has a background in international development and design thinking and loves to test ideas and come up with new ways to solve social problems and cater to people’s needs. Hesham has worked in initiatives fighting unemployment, providing legal and general assistance to refugees, and helping new Berliners arrive and navigate bureaucracies. He also has experience working on small film productions, which he still contributes to occasionally.
At GSBTB Hesham is responsible for fundraising and community management. If you have any questions about us, ideas for collaboration, or anything we can help you with, he will happily be your point of contact!
