Some foreign youths follow the trend of starting a business and making innovations and Ahmad Saadi, a man from Yemen, is one of them.

Ahmad Saadi, 29, has got a Chinese name "A De". A De is a partner and chief technology officer of Aimeng Entertainment. Following the lead of A De, the technical team uses algorithms to analyze the historical data and online data and predict the overall box office performance of films.

A De was sent to China for further education by the government of Yemen ten years ago. He majored in computer science in the University of Science and Technology of China before he went to Tsinghua University and studied for his master degree on the Chinese government scholarship. Upon graduation, he chose to start a business in Beijing.

A De wants to use his technical expertise and have the prospect of a bright future. He liked talking with numerous makers during his stay at Tsinghua University. He met Lei Ming, a web columnist, in 2012 and these two people decided to apply the Internet technologies in the film sector and use the artificial technology to help the film industry control the risk. They won the first deal in the second half of 2014 after they started a company at the end of 2013.

Quite a few foreigners start their own business in China and just a few foreign youths choose to build a company in China. A De favors the entrepreneurial climate in which Internet start-ups can prosper.

After running a firm for ten years in China, A De plans to bring what he has learned from China back to his hometown and help these young people there to receive a better education through online courses.
