Mohamed Elabshihy

“I love being part of a team whose purpose is to empower today’s dreamers to make tomorrow a better world.”
Mo’s fascination with tech and entrepreneurship sprouted during his years at Ryerson University, where he was first exposed to the Canadian startup ecosystem and has continued to grow ever since. After graduating, Mo spent over 3 years at MaRS Discovery District, where he managed a portfolio of products focused on enabling startups to raise capital and expand to global markets. In his role at Real, Mo plays an integral part in supporting the firm’s investment activities and enjoys meeting entrepreneurs and learning about the latest trends in tech.

Mo grew up in Cairo, Egypt, before moving to Toronto in 2013. In his spare time, he mentors startups with the League of Innovators and the Startup Visa program. He is also an avid sports fan, having played soccer professionally in his youth, and is always up for a chat about soccer or willing to join a pickup game on sunny days.
