Nexford University

Fadl founded Nexford University in 2018, a next-generation university platform with a vision to enable greater social and economic mobility through high-quality, affordable education. His vision stemmed from having built four startups employing over 500 people across 10 emerging markets. Growing up in Egypt then throughout his entrepreneurial journey Fadl witnessed how lack of access to affordable, high-quality education impacts societies across the world. Fadl became an entrepreneur at 18, and has accumulated 20 years’ experience founding digital marketing and SaaS startups, leading award winning digital engagement and digital transformation projects. Cumulatively, his startups have raised over $20 million in growth capital and employ more than 600 people globally. Under News Group International, he launched and grew SOCIALEYEZ from two to more than 120 people globally. Through his startups Fadl has worked with a diverse and global range of organizations including Microsoft, Starbucks, US State Department and the UAE Prime Minister’s Office, giving him a unique understanding of how to leverage marketing and technology towards any organizational objective. Fadl has lived in Cairo, Paris, Washington DC, Dubai and London. He holds a BBA from the American University in Cairo and management degrees from George Washington and Middlesex Universities.
