Ali lives by a Darwin quote, that it is not the strongest of species that survive but those who are the most adaptable towards change! Since fully grasping the meaning of this sentence he has lived his life by looking into the future and trying to understand where the world is going. Ali studied Business Administration and chose to enter a conservative diamond trading business as a business development manager. He soon came to the conclusion that he was much more into innovation and the future in general instead of looking at what has been forged for thousands of years underground.
He is currently the managing director of an accelerator in Belgium as well as an investment analyst for a prominent Belgian VC-Fund. He spends most of his free time reading philosophical books and this inspired him to get involved with The Seasteading Institute. Eventually he would like nothing more than to actually build a fully operational and self-sustaining seasteading that could prove once and for all that people can organise themselves in a civil manner without government interference and that it could lead to an immense progress forward by taking away anything that stands in the way of innovation. Right now he’ll be focusing on building a team of people with similar visions and goals in the Belgium to exchange ideas and tap into opportunities. Don’t hesitate to get in touch!
