Intimate Interview with a Saudi Prince and Serial Tech Entrepreneur

Fahad Al Saud is a social entrepreneur, innovative philanthropist and devoted humanitarian. A Stanford graduate in engineering, he joined Facebook as Analyst & Head of User Operations Arabic in 2008, which earned him the distinction of being named Most Influential International Youth at the 2011 Arab Youth Media Forum.

A frequent NATO lecturer on the Middle East’s social media & privacy issues, Fahad’s contributions to the privacy and security sectors gave rise to his 2011 appointment as Ambassador of Privacy to the Arab World by Dr. Anna Cavokian, Canada’s Information & Privacy Commissioner. Currently, Fahad consults the Saudi government on cyber-technology and other youth focused capacity building programs within his home Kingdom; he has successfully introduced a number of ventures in online gaming and social networking, including KSA’s first “Start-up weekend”.

In October 2012, Playsino acquired Fahad’s Popover Games, a multi-player heritage games company for Facebook and other mobile platforms. As co-founder, Fahad was pivotal in one of the first international sales of an Arab-owned social gaming company. His latest venture continues to align with his pride in the Middle East: NA3M (New Arabic Media), which represents a new age commitment to entrepreneurship in the region, through the support of technologically driven start-up companies.

    It is interesting to hear from a prince’s view of how the people’s perception of him is wrong. It’s just like the saying goes, “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover.” I love how he said in the end that his position of prince is only relevant when it comes to what he does for his country. I think that is a powerful statement.

    So much accomplished at such a young age!

    I really enjoyed this interview and how it was straight to the point. The harder we work early on, almost guarantees us more in return in the future. I like how Saud claims that he “deserves” his success. After we have gained success through hard work and accomplishments we need to enjoy it and be proud of ourselves. People that have no drive to work hard do not have a right to tell you that you “can’t” do something because they obviously don’t know the good that can come out of working hard.

    I really liked this interview because sometimes I feel the same way. If you work hard for some thing and put the time and effort into something, who is someone else to tell you that its right or wrong. I like how he said he deserves his success. I would feel that way too after putting so much hard work and dedication into something.
