Meet Wael Badawy - Alberta VentureWhen Wael Badawy left Egypt, he didn’t come directly to Alberta. Instead, the researcher headed to Lafayette, Louisiana, where he completed his doctorate in computer engineering in 2000. But Badawy didn’t stay in the U.S. for long. While attending the University of Louisiana, he fell in love. “She was from Calgary,” Badawy says, “so I came here and we married, and now we have three boys. We’ve been in Calgary since then.” Calgary has been a good fit for Badawy, who says the city’s mentorship programs have been a major asset to him, both as an immigrant and an entrepreneur. “[Calgary] has major oil and gas companies, it has good investment money and a good market for us. But the primary reason to stay in Calgary is the community and the mentorship.”
