Fadl Al Tarzi founded Nexford University with a vision to enable greater social and economic mobility through high-quality, affordable education. His vision stemmed from having built four startups employing over 500 people across 10 emerging markets.
He learned from his entrepreneurial experiences how societies around the world are impacted by the lack of access to inexpensive, high-quality education. At the age of 18, Fadl started his own business. He has since founded SaaS and digital marketing firms and managed projects that won awards for digital engagement and digital transformation.
His businesses have collectively raised over $15 million in growth capital, and they currently employ more than 500 people worldwide. He founded and expanded SOCIALEYEZ under News Group International, from two to more than 120 individuals worldwide. He has collaborated with Fortune 500 companies, major international consumer brands like Starbucks, and US, European, and MENA regional governments. Fadl has resided in Cairo, Paris, London, Dubai, and Washington, D.C.
