Adel co-founded Despark, where he was able to pursue his love for technology and later combined it with Architecture via OpenBuildings.com, a crowdsourced buildings database and Clippings.com, the online design resource. Adel is an ambitious and savvy business leader who is able to put together great teams and motivate them to do amazing work. Despite not formally utilizing his degree from the AA School of Architecture in London, he has managed to interweave his passion for architecture and design throughout all of his entrepreneurial endeavors. He applies the same rule to every new business venture; which is to “do what you love”. He also owns a gourmet burger joint, just for kicks.
