Helping social enterprise in Syria
Uday ran a 7 day social enterprise Bootcamp for a group of 18 Syrian social entrepreneurs in Beirut in March. The Syrian social entrepreneurs are attempting to tackle major problems under extremely difficult conditions.

Other projects included helping to launch and support app based businesses to create employment and opportunities in Syria.
