Living between the US and Lebanon, Anthony has had a wide exposure to many cultures. He graduated from LAU with a Hospitality and Tourism Management degree while working at a 5-star hotel. His background in hospitality, as well as his love for nature, led him to having an interest in agriculture which he pursues during his free time.
Since graduating, Anthony worked at a startup, which was located in Berytech BDD1294. He later moved to Flat6Labs and ArabNet where he was exposed to VCs, angel networks, founders and many startups. Listening to innovators’ problems and helping them solve the issues at hand quickly became a passion of his. Berytech combined both his passions for supporting startups and agricultural practices.
Ever since a young age, Anthony has been passionate about social issues such as freedom of speech, a clean environment, economic development, and education. These values are what drive him to work on projects that help the people around him and in society.
