"This is the role of every CEO, and every individual in the community: You have to give back."

Serial entrepreneur Eli Fathi has done it all in Ottawa tech. Over the course of his seven startups, Fathi has found success multiple times, including the acquisition of Fluidware and his current role as CEO of MindBridge AI.

In the past few months, Fathi has been recognized for these successes with the Startup Canada Senior Entrepreneur Award and being named the Algonquin College Alumni of the Year.

As a coach with the L-Spark program and as a friend and mentor to up-and-comers such as Aydin Mirzaee, giving back has been a part of Fathi's legacy.

In the latest of our Techopia Live series, Fathi shares the insights of a long career and why giving back - mentoring the next generation of entrepreneurs - is so important to him.
