“I would like to take the opportunity to thank Business Elite for continuing to recognize young business leaders and entrepreneurs,” said Latayfeh.  “I had the chance to reflect on my journey and everyone who supported me, including my family, friends, and colleagues. It felt uplifting to sense all the incredible energy in the room, while it was inspiring to listen to the rest of the “40 Under 40″ cohort and their similar extraordinary stories, making new connections with like-minded individuals.”

I also accessed a strong alumni network in Canada and internationally.”
