Passionate about social innovation, I am very interested in the impact of collaboration enabled by digital technology in creative and innovative communities that emerge in organizations and in society in general. My main motivation is to bring together people around meaningful projects, based on collective intelligence and leveraging on technology.
I believe that collaborative communities offer new alternatives to social and economic development for developing countries. I have been a connector for the OuiShare community, and international think and do thank on emerging paradigms such as collaborative economy, open source manufacturing, decentralized organizations and zero waste societies, since the past 2 years. My focus has been on creating synergies in the areas of digital innovation and collaborative entrepreneurship between Europe and MENA region (Middle East and North Africa). This is an area of particular importance as I am Moroccan, by birth, and reside in Paris.
