Ghassan Halawa

Founder/CEO | PARACHUTE16 | Jordan

I am an entrepreneur and a MENA ecosystem builder, holding a passion for people. As an active member of the creative entrepreneurship ecosystem, I enjoy building capacity, connecting, inspiring, and empowering entrepreneurs, individuals, communities, and ecosystems locally, regionally, and globally. We are an Impact Design House specialised in entrepreneurship and innovation, and that is where you can find me, have us build something together, and generate real impact. Finding eight startups and landing on the 7th, PARACHUTE16, I not only enjoy my work as an entrepreneur. But I am always fascinated to be a part of others’ life stories and experiences. Today, and after 14 years of experience in the social entrepreneurship field, we have worked with 60+ success partners, 70+ consultants, 75+ expert mentors, and 55+ projects, and 30,000 youth in 14 Arab countries by having people management and knowledge management become a core part of our daily work. Today, I am delighted to build upon such experiences by learning more about the power of public narrative through storytelling, leadership, and action
