From humble beginnings, Assem Emam has been chasing his dreams for more than seven years in the fields of IT, Marketing and Media Communications. The culmination of seven years of diverse experiences has led him to Egyptian Streets , where he is a co-founder and the organization’s business development manager.
Today, Egyptian Streets, one of the fastest growing English news websites, is quickly rising to become the number one English media organization in Egypt. Egyptian Streets provides an alternate portrayal of Egyptian affairs, focusing primarily on the issues that impact Egyptians the most.
From previously working as a brand manager at Sarmady and playing a central role in the management and business development of Akhbarak.net (one of Egypt’s most visited websites), Assem has shown how to create something from nothing. For more than two years, he managed communications with hundreds of publishers in Egypt and the Middle East and managed to build up the social media presence of Akhbarak to become one of the most effective and engaging sites in the region.
With a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology and a Diploma in Marketing Communications, Assem, who also works now as a consultant for a multitude of startups, including @Naqeshny, has always aimed to inspire change within the business community by helping small-businesses find their way to the Yellow Brick Road. He has truly shown what it takes to be an ordinary person who creates extraordinary change and success.
