Jad is the co-founder of koodos labs. He is primarily a builder, but also writes and speaks on the sociology, business and design of social platforms, creative tools and media protocols. His work centers on how we can make good on the Internet's original promise of personal empowerment, peer-to-peer exchange and networks based on mutual interests rather than algorithmic nudging
Jad was trained as an engineer and was previously at Google & YouTube, where he worked with and built for creators and artists in emerging markets. Jad has a Bachelor and Master in Engineering from the University of Cambridge and an MBA from Harvard, where he was also a Sainsbury Management Fellow and led the entrepreneurship club.
