Learn about our Guest, Feras:
Hi, I’m Feras Alhlou, and I’m passionate about helping you succeed.

It was a layoff in 2003 that first led (or forced) me down the path of entrepreneurship.
I had to learn many new business skills, most of which were way out of my comfort zone.
I had to learn how to wear many hats and work hard even when the results weren’t immediate.

I had to learn how to draw lessons from setbacks and how to recognize when to adjust my entrepreneurial vision and pivot toward different opportunities.

Through this learning and hard work over many years, I became top earner within a franchise (and a coach for other franchisees), and I built and scaled businesses in Silicon Valley and abroad to 7 and 8 figures.

During this time, I authored many publications that earned high regard, including Google Analytics Breakthrough: From Zero to Business Impact. (Feedback on Amazon included: "This book really deserves 10 out of 5 ratings!"). I also had many opportunities to speak at industry conferences as well as several invitations to sit on boards of other organizations.

In 2019, I sold my web and marketing analytics consultancy — which had started as a small web design firm — to dentsu, a media company with global scale.

Many people helped me along the way, and my goal now is to give back through community involvement and an ongoing dedication to non-profits (which included an entire year of pro-bono management consulting).

I have also advised and mentored 150+ new businesses. Through Start Up With Feras, I'm continuing to offer aspiring entrepreneurs the expert guidance that they need to succeed.
