ABOUT

Marwan Refaat is a tech entrepreneur known for inventing AI for the blind at MIT and a recruiting platform partnered with Forbes and Morgan Stanley while at Harvard.

During his venture fellowship at MIT Marwan built assistive computer vision software for students at the Perkins School for the Blind using proprietary AI algorithms for which he secured two patents. Owing to the generous support of the Dubai Ministry of AI and the Egyptian Ministry of IT the technology has since been used by visually impaired people to identify millions of objects in 57 different languages and has been covered by CNN, Forbes, and Thompson Reuters among others.

Marwan also served as a founder and CTO of an AI-driven networking and recruiting platform incubated by the Harvard Innovation Labs. The platform has since expanded accross the Ivy League as well as built partnerships with Forbes and Morgan Stanley, and has been used by recruiters at prestigious EPS firms including BlackRock, BCG, Vanguard, KKR, The D. E. Shaw Group, and Goldman Sachs.
