HH Prince Fahad Al Saud is an entrepreneur, CEO and pioneer in the Middle East’s creative and technology sectors. He is committed to social change; backing initiatives to empower people and businesses across the Middle East, the USA and Africa.
Royals have been making a splash in the news lately, but there's one prince who's stayed out of the spotlight. Prince Fahad bin Faisal Al Saud is a grandson of the brother of the Saudi Arabian king. He could easily be living the high life at home in Saudi Arabia, but instead he's made a name for himself as a tech entrepreneur and social media evangelist.
Many people born into royalty are content carrying on disastrous affairs and consuming Veuve Cliquot and caviar for breakfast every morning while setting a terrible, terrible example for all of their subjects on the public’s dime.
His Highness Prince Fahad Al Saud is a technology evangelist, philanthropist and entrepreneur. A graduate of Stanford University, Prince Fahad’s passion and dedication to technology has contributed to dedicated works and investments in education, job creation, youth empowerment and socially responsible content development.
Prince Fahad Al Saud grew up playing video games, but as an Arab, he did not always identify with the villains on screen, many of them depicted as Middle Eastern. He started NA3M (New Arab Media) to make games that people, especially girls, in his home country of Saudi Arabia could better relate to.
A Saudi Arabian Prince is using a simple relaxation tool we take for granted here in the United States as a way to break down barriers for how the world views the Middle East. According to Fahad Al Saud in his keynote speech at the Games for Change Festival in New York last week, a middle eastern gaming company called NA3M was created in order to change the landscape of Arab entertainment online through means of comics, educational software, and, of course, video games.
