Ibrahim’s a venture capitalist by day, and engineer and quant by night. At DCM, Ibrahim focuses on investments in consumer and emerging tech, and is keen on meeting and partnering with ambitious founders solving some of the world’s hardest problems.
Prior to joining DCM, he was a Principal at Pear Ventures, a seed and pre-seed focused fund. Earlier still, Ibrahim worked in government strategy and policy consulting and helped manage a multi-billion dollar portfolio of state-owned enterprises.
A native of both the UAE and Taiwan, Ibrahim is fluent in both Arabic and Mandarin Chinese. As another by-product of his mixed heritage, he also enjoys dabbling in fusion cuisine experiments. Ibrahim spends much of his time reading scifi and rock climbing, and can often be found at some of the bay area’s various indoor and outdoor climbing spots. Ibrahim also enjoys periodically working on engineering side projects (previous projects include an algorithmic trading platform, hacky song-matching code to win a radio competition, various Slack bots, etc...).
Ibrahim holds an M.B.A. from Stanford's Graduate School of Business where he was a Siebel Scholar and Arjay Miller Scholar. He also holds an M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford where he conducted research in drone swarming, and a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Northwestern where he co-authored papers in aquatic locomotion and tribology.
