[title size=”1″]About Amir Ahmad Nasr [/title]
Described by The Economist as “puckish” and by WIRED as a “formidable speaker,” Amir Ahmad Nasr is a veteran digital activist turned writer, entrepreneur, strategic advisor, and “culture hacker” who regularly sheds light on one of the most important emerging trends of our time: how tech-savvy Millennials are hacking business, culture, religion, and politics. He’s passionate about helping more brands, non-profits, and free enterprises grow and become a force for good.
Known as the cheeky voice behind the acclaimed sociopolitical blog The Sudanese Thinker—which he wrote anonymously until the revelation of his identity five years later during the Arab Uprisings of 2011—Amir has shared the stage with Nobel Peace Laureates, former presidents, and fellow activists, and has been featured by The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, Al Jazeera, and France24, among many others.
He is a member of the US-based Young Entrepreneurs Council, and is the co-founder and CEO of Mindvalley Arabic. He’s also the author of the book My Isl@m: How Fundamentalism Stole My Mind–and Doubt Freed My Soul, recommended by Foreign Policy magazine in its list of top 25 books to read in 2013. He resides in Southeast Asia and travels internationally regularly.
