Early Life

Emil is a Coptic Christian who was born in Cairo, Egypt, and immigrated to the United States with his family in the early 1970s. He earned his B.A. in Government with honors from Harvard College, where he also wrote for the Harvard Crimson and was president of the Harvard Republican Club.

During his presidency, the club renamed itself the Harvard-Radcliffe Republican Club to attract more women members. He graduated with a J.D. with honors from Stanford Law School.


Emil began his career at Goldman Sachs. He worked briefly as an investment banker before moving to Silicon Valley and joining the founding team of Tellme Networks.

Tellme was a pioneer in the development of speech recognition technology and systems. Tellme is known for surviving the technology crisis in 2000 while building a sustainable and profitable business.

Following the sale of Tellme to Microsoft, Emil was named a White House Fellow in 2009 and served as Special Assistant to the Secretary of Defense. During his time at the Pentagon, Emil oversaw projects in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan. He also led a department-wide budget reduction initiative to cut overhead and bureaucracy.

Because of his commitment to active duty, the Secretary of Defense asked Emil to remain in office beyond his term, which he did. As a result, his term was extended through January 2011. Emil founded UberMilitary, a program at Uber for military veterans and their families, by connecting the dots between his service in government and his work in Silicon Valley. The program currently has over 100,000 participants with total revenue of over $340 million.

In addition to his leadership roles, Emil has coached and mentored dozens of young CEOs over the years. This role as a mentor has given him extensive insight into young companies, technologies and trends.

He is also an advisor or investor to more than 20 startups around the world, demonstrating his commitment to helping the next generation of entrepreneurs build and scale their businesses. His investments include companies such as Bird, Codecademy, Docker, GoEuro, GoPuff, SpaceX, and Stripe.

Emil is a unique leader in that he understands technology from both a product and technical standpoint. This enables him to work with technical leaders and departments to ensure alignment with a company’s business goals. He is also particularly interested in artificial intelligence, Big Data, computer vision and robotics.

Personal Life & Wife

Emil married his longtime girlfriend Julie Herrin in a ceremony in Miami, Florida, in early 2018. The couple met in Las Vegas in 2012, NV.

Keith Gentle, a good friend of the couple, performed the marriage ceremony and served as pastor for their life together on this occasion. She speaks fondly of her second marriage to Emil.

The wedding cost of the Egyptian-American businessman is said to be between $1 and 5 million dollars.
