Thank you for stopping by ūüôā I am Hatem Mahbouli. ¬†I am currently an investment officer at FMO, the Dutch development bank, in the Hague, on a one-year assignment with ElectriFI, a new EU sponsored investment initiative to alleviate energy poverty. For the past six years, I have had the amazing opportunity to contribute to complex investments with high development impact. I am member of ¬†investment panels and representing FMO at Lok Capital 2 and Indian Financial Inclusion Fund, both investment ¬†funds active in inclusive businesses in India.¬†Before joining FMO, I was involved in various efforts to develop social business and impact investing with leading organizations such as Ashoka and Gray Ghost Ventures. ¬†I also contributed to strategy¬†consulting¬†and business modelling ¬†projects for ¬†Shea Yeleen International, HelloWallet, Gnewt Cargo, and IBM Brazil. Previously, I held a consulting position in Industrial and Organisational¬†Systems Integration at the Paris office of Accenture.

Following my high interest in social innovation and entrepreneurship, I co- founded the Tunisian Center for Social Entrepreneurship in 2011 to help promote social entrepreneurship initiatives and a social economy friendly legislation in Tunisia. I am also contributor at Wamda, the leading entrepreneurship online platform in the Arab World, and an active supporter of TAYP.

Since August 2014, I have been involved as Practitioner Coach in Leiden University, supporting students taking the exciting “Entrepreneurship for Society” minor.¬† I also just started¬† with a couple of friends a fun side project, the “Debate International” club, based in the Hague. I have also co-founded FuckUp Nights the Hague¬†, a platform to share business failures and lessons learned!

I graduated from Georgetown University Mc Donough Business School (MBA РWashington DC) and Telecom SudParis (Master of Engineering- Paris, France) . During my studies, I also attended the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, the Georgetown Public Policy Center, London Business School, the Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology and Sainte Genevieve School of Versailles.  I am also a CFA charter-holder.

I had the privilege to  live and/or work in various countries such as France, USA, UK, Rwanda, Cambodia, South Korea, Lebanon etc.

This blog is to share some ideas, projects and passions. I hope it can help in some way, and please feel free to leave comments or to contact me!
