Fadi Daou is the Chief Executive Officer of MultiLane who founded the company in 2006. He is a successful entrepreneur with 30 years of experience founding high-tech startups and developing state-of-the-art technology products and solutions in the semiconductor industry. Fadi’s entrepreneurial journey started in 2000 when he cofounded Telephonics, a developer of passive optical components. FiberGrade, his next venture, specializes in optical monitoring equipment. After this, Fadi founded PXIT, which produces high-performance instruments for the electro-optical transceiver market. After repatriating to Lebanon in 2006, Fadi founded Multilane SAL in his hometown of Houmal, with the plan to help create a high-tech sector in the country.
Following his vision of making Lebanon a hub for technology development, Fadi launched Houmal Technology Park (HTP). The mission of HTP is to create an ecosystem to support the Lebanese high-tech sector. It will lead to the creation of hundreds of technology jobs and high-value opportunities in the area. Instead of bright young people leaving Lebanon to seek opportunities abroad, they can now find those opportunities at home, leaving the relocation to the products they design and build.
