High profile VC in Silicon Valley Sequoia Capital has hired Syrian entrepreneur and mobile advertising network founder AdMob Omar Hamoui as an investor partner.

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.
