Mahdi is the operations officer at INJAZ El Djazair, the Algerian branch of INJAZ Al-Arab, an affiliate of Junior Achievement. While he was in college, he created a [what kind of?] company called Zine Zmen with the support of INJAZ El Djazair. After a year, Zine went bankrupt and Mahdi worked in the foreign guarantees department of the ARAB BANK ALGERIA group. Ten months ago, he returned to his current role at INJAZ El Djazair.
He is an event planner and organizer, working on such events as an international Symposium focused on innovative management, and a recruitment forum with 6,000 attendees. As his final thesis for his Bachelor’s in 2012, he did research on angel investing—the first in the Maghreb region. He has a degree in Business from the Algerian Higher School of Commerce.
