Anas Elayyan

Vice President

Business Interests

It’s difficult to fit Anas into a stereotype, and although he’s full of surprises and may seem odd at times, he always finds ways to connect and resonate with people.

Anas started his career in banking, and then soon joined the rise of the Internet era in the region with iMENA. At iMENA, he is able to calm the techie in him, and he makes sure his hands are always dirty. He is either wearing the iMENA, working with one of the startups, or can be seen networking or even trying to build something new.

Anas is someone who walks the talk. He launched his own startup, and specializes in commercialization and growth of technology startups. His confidence, eagerness to learn, and willingness to accept challenges position him at a unique standpoint and contribute to most of his success as an entrepreneur and member of iMENA.

“I'm not afraid of failure. In fact, I think it is an essential part of the experimental learning process that gets you to success…I guess I have good confidence which makes me willing to seek and accept challenges which I may not appear to be able to deliver on initially.”
