Deena Habib, CEO & Co-founder
Deena Habib, a proud working mother of two with a passion for technology, is on a mission to help revolutionize the way youth connect to businesses.

With a Bachelor's Degree in Telecommunications Engineering from University of Kent in the UK, Deena plunged into her first role on a cable ship installing fiber optics and since then rose into leading marketing roles with some of the biggest firms in the industry. She spent more than two decades working with Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, Dell, Oracle and IBM.

Passionate about public speaking, Deena was the official spokesperson for several of her past companies and spent a majority of her time at large conferences across the region. Knighted ‘The Enthusiast’, by Channel Middle East, and featured as a leading woman in Tech for the MENA region, Deena uses her technical background and passion for the youth to help them tackle their ever changing needs.

She aspires to be a part of the world with unlimited opportunities that can truly empower the youth.

Ban Jishi, COO & Co-founder
Ban Jishi, a true changemaker and facilitator, is on a mission to help revolutionize the way youth connect to businesses. An “unconventional” student, Ban found her path to graduation challenging and not well-rounded. She excelled in areas that weren’t considered building blocks to a professional career back then.

Welcoming opportunities that came her way, Ban explored various professional avenues ranging from Retail management, IT Marketing and Entrepreneurship. She realized her A-ha moment two decades after graduation, recognizing diversity and human connection to be elements students need to thrive.

Ban dedicated the last decade to experiential learning through holistic programs earning certifications across a multitude of modalities including Life coaching, Breathwork and Bodytalk. Passionate about guiding and supporting others on their journeys, Ban wants to empower the youth to create and live the life they desire.
