Thank you for stopping by : ) I am Hatem Mahbouli. I am currently an investment officer at FMO, the Dutch development bank, in the Hague. Every day, I have the amazing opportunity to contribute to complicated investments with high development impact, mainly in Africa and Asia. Before joining FMO, I was involved in various efforts to develop social business and impact investing with leading organizations such as Ashoka and Gray Ghost Ventures. I also contributed to strategy consulting and business modelling projects for Shea Yeleen International, HelloWallet, Gnewt Cargo, and IBM Brazil. Previously, I held a consulting position in Industrial and Organisational Systems Integration at the Paris office of Accenture.
Following my high interest in social innovation and entrepreneurship, I co- founded the Tunisian Center for Social Entrepreneurship in 2011 to help promote social entrepreneurship initiatives and a social economy friendly legislation in Tunisia. I am also contributor at Wamda, the leading entrepreneurship online platform in the Arab World, and an active supporter of TAYP.
I graduated from Georgetown University Mc Donough Business School (MBA – Washington DC) and Telecom SudParis (Master of Engineering- Paris, France) . During my studies, I also attended the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, the Georgetown Public Policy Center, London Business School, the Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology and Sainte Genevieve School of Versailles.
I had the privilege to live and/or work in various countries such as France, USA, UK, Rwanda, Cambodia, South Korea, Lebanon etc.
