Ghassan is a social entrepreneur that works to build capacity, connect, inspire, educate, and empower communities from within. Ghassan founded PARACHUTE16, a change agency that aims to fly with entrepreneurs, ecosystems, corporates, organizations, educational institutions, the public sector, and the private sector to the next destination. Ghassan’s mission is to collaborate with more entrepreneurs, governments, INGOs, and corporates in the MENA region to foster entrepreneurship, innovation, and creativity “glocally”. “My motivation is my people; my team, my community, my partners, family, and friends. Connecting dots to create impact, I believe, is what makes me progress well in the field. I believe everyone has a story to give, our job is to connect these individual stories together to create collective impact. Love, openness, and service are three priorities that direct my vision in pivoting the ways businesses think, act, and implement impact with their people. I aim to use all kinds of resources, capabilities, skills, and connections to offer others growth made of greatest value and happiness.”
