Who I Am

Ali Haddad

Social Entrepreneur and Youth Development Leader from Jordan

I’m a social entrepreneur, focused on youth empowerment and entrepreneurship in the MENA region. Among many organizations with which I have worked, two of the most important ones are Jordan Youth Innovation Forum (JYIF) and GAME. JYIF is aimed at increasing the participation of youth in the development process, and GAME is an INGO that uses sports as a tool for social impact and youth empowerment.


Currently, I’m pursuing an executive MBA program from Said Business School, Oxford University.  Leveraging my skills, knowledge, and connections from this graduate school and otherwise, I am eager to continue empowering youth for a bright future of the MENA region.
