Later he co-founded Lammt.com in 2014, the most important local ticketing platform in Saudi, that did more than SAR 6M in tickets sales in 2017. In 2017, he shifted into entrepreneurship education by working at the Mohammed bin Salman College for Business and Entrepreneurship and Ignite Centers in 2017 and 2018 respectively. Most recently, he has returned to UTURN as General Manager excited to restart the brand in a new competitive landscape.
