Abdul-Kudus Alhassan

CEO + Co-Founder


Mr. Abdul-Kudus Alhassan is a visionary leader who is driven by a heart for change. With his keen interest in the intersection between technology, entrepreneurship, and social impact, he aspires to revolutionize the education sector by providing access to quality education to over 300 million students on the African continent. Abdul-Kudus is a sophomore at Dartmouth and a recent graduate of the African Leadership Academy, the number one pan-African high school with the phenomenal mission of training the next generation of African leaders through entrepreneurial leadership. This foundation inspired him to launch Fix, a merchandise printing enterprise, in high school. Abdul-Kudus led this venture to a record-breaking exit in just six months, demonstrating his ability to swiftly convert innovative ideas into successful enterprises. Currently, Abdul-Kudus is the CEO and co-founder of Enlight, a startup aimed at enabling e-learning in areas without internet access. His leadership has propelled Enlight from a concept to a promising MVP, securing victories in competitive pitch competitions that have secured over $20,000 in prizes and mission-crucial partnerships. Beyond business, he interned with the Dartmouth College Fund, contributing to raising $44.3 million in 2023 to support student financial aid. With this wealth of experience, he was appointed to serve on the Magnuson Center for Entrepreneurship's Student Leadership Board at Dartmouth, where he provides support to other student entrepreneurs.
