Join this open event where Hany Genena, adjunct faculty at the Department of Management, is inviting Ahmad Hammouda, co-founder and CEO of Thndr, a fully licensed investment platform, that makes it easy to invest in stocks, bonds, and funds, as a guest speaker to his finance class. This session is part of the Department of Management's Academic Talks Webinar series and will be held both online and on campus at the CONFR P008 (Shafik Gabr Hall).

Ahmad Hammouda is currently the CEO of Thndr, a fully licensed investment platform, that makes it easy to invest in stocks, bonds, and funds. Thndr aims at solving Egypt and the region’s painful, outdated and time consuming process to open, fund and actively manage investment accounts. Thndr is a Y Combinator backed investment platform. Thndr’s first product was commission free, mobile-first equities trading in Egypt. The startup acquired the necessary licensing from the Egyptian Financial Regulatory Authority (FRA) in August 2020, making it the first company to receive a brokerage license in Egypt since 2008.
Prior to founding Thndr, Hammouda used to be the General Manager of Uber in Egypt, managing the strategic operations, marketing, and growth of one of the company’s most important markets globally. Under Hammouda’s realm, Uber Egypt’s bookings grew by 65% YoY, making Cario the biggest market in Europe, Middle East and Africa in terms of trips.

Hammouda was previously vice president at CI Capital Investment Banking, where he distinguished himself in the Merger and Acquisitions department. Hammouda is a co-founder of The Food Company, where he was actively involved in launching its first concept, APRON, the first branded delivery food platform that delivers home-inspired food. Hammouda is a CFA member, and has a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from The American University in Cairo.
