When Jad was 8 years old, he would disassemble his small toys and assemble them in different ways. His passion for hardware and robots led him to detach himself from the world around him and devote his time for research and experimentation. At 19 he started Innovo, one of the top hardware laboratories in the region, clients come with ideas and he transforms them into physical products. He is very proud of what he achieved so far, and he thinks that the best is yet to come.
