Syrian Entrepreneur and AdMob Founder Omar Hamoui Joins Sequoia Capital
Omar founded Admob and sold it in 2009 to Google for $750 million. and Sequoia Capital was one of the first investors in the platform, . Hamoui also founded startup accelerator Churn Labs, which was shut down in May 2012 after the entrepreneurs left for various startup jobs.
Hamoui sold his most recently company, a social polling startup called Maybe Inc., to LinkedIn. While building Maybe, he also made some strategic investments in early-stage startups such as Gigwalk and Card.io.
I hope successful entrepreneurs in the west like Omar connect with Arab entrepreneurs in the Arab world to mentor and invest in their startups.
