Hi, I am


Adil Gherib





a creative entrepreneur who believes in the social impact of entrepreneurship, driven by the power of technology.


Six years ago, I decided to adopt a nomadic lifestyle and spread the word that technology, creativity, and travel encourage social engagement, youth leadership, and sustainable economy. So far, I have visited more than 100 countries while improving my overall happiness, health, and well-being.


I’m the co-founder a MAQTOOB , a platform for entrepreneurs to search, rate, and review business apps. Our goal is to help aspiring entrepreneurs discover relevant business apps and app creators to attract targeted users.


Consultant


I have worked with various public and private organizations on four continents. My key services cover:

 

 Technology to enable democratization of access to the latest innovations

 

Entrepreneurship as a means of economic development

 

Social Impact to solve local problems and empower communities

 

and dialogue with Young & Youth to address local challenges by introducing them to innovation and problem solving.

Non-Profit

In 2015, I co-launched a non-profit tour around the world to help local entrepreneurs build and grow micro and small social businesses with the help of technology.

 

Over the last 15 months, I have organized events for more than 2,100 entrepreneurs in 15 different countries and 4 continents.

In 2016, I joined Techfugees as head of chapter in Africa & South America. Techfugees is a social enterprise coordinating the international tech community’s response to the needs of Refugees. Techfugees organises conferences, workshops, hackathons and meetups around the world in an effort to generate tech solutions that can help refugees. It also curates and promotes the best projects it finds for implementation in the field. Techfugees is headquartered in London and has 25 chapters around the world.

Speaker

Popular topics include: digital nomadism as an alternative way of life, remote working and productivity, business tools to build and grow a business, sales strategies and business development, switching careers, and travel tips.

 

I have given talks at events, conferences, and universities in cities such as London, Casablanca, New York, Cape Town, São Paulo, Paris and many others. 

Travel

I believe that traveling with purpose can change your vision of the world and help you discover your true self.

 

Travel teaches flexibility and compassion. It helps you acquire new skills, stay open-minded, foster your creativity, and develop self-confidence.

Projects

Comics Around the World

The vision behind this project is to spread creativity and tolerance in primary schools around the world through comic books.

 

Within the project of Comics Around the World adolescent students continue a previous page’s story, which was created by a class from another country. For example, students in Costa Rica continue the story drawn by a class in Colombia, and so on.

Humans of the World

Inspired by the famous Humans of New York, Humans of the World put the spotlight on people from faraway corners of the globe, with different backgrounds and contrasting life perspectives. 

Dude Nomad

is a mix of my travel stories as well as my videos, works of local artist, and interviews with individuals who represent their nation. Their names will also redirect you to their website or blog.
