Iyad el-Baghdadi is a prominent Arab intellectual, writer, and activist. A career entrepreneur, he has over a decade’s experience with start-ups when the Arab uprisings started in 2011. Over the next few years, his Twitter account became among the most influential and respected – leading ultimately in 2014 to his being arrested, jailed, and eventually exiled from the United Arab Emirates, due to his pro-democracy activism.
