Personal Summary and Experiences

Having been afforded the unique opportunity to learn from one of the best technical schools (FAST) in the country, I’m quite adept at the technical side of technology and its implementation. Coupled with the fact that I have been doing public speaking and debating in one form or another since i was in 2nd grade from plays to speeches to debates, I feel that it has given me a unique ability to be able to confidently and competently speak my mind while keeping diplomacy in mind. Having also been reading about and analyzing all the failures and success of giant industry giants and their co-founders such as apple and Microsoft as well as relatively smaller startups like snapchat and twitter I also have a better than average grasp of the tech industry and what factors usually contribute to a startups success and failure. I also took the initiative with my class mates and launched 4 startups in my time here at fast, none of them lasted long but the experience was very rewarding and informative.  We learned that creating an online presence, a logo, a business plan, an organizational hierarchy alongside a presentation to pitch to potential investors wasn’t enough. We learned having very skilled people wasn’t enough, we learned no matter no good an idea or plan sounds it will always face unexpected hurdles for it is said “everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face”. What usually punches you is the real world, your potential customers and even your partners.  We created ‘Tech-Hakeem’ the premiere one stop online tech repair service for the technically unsavy and wealthy, ‘V-teach’ the online home tuition initiate based on a modular payment and no commitment plan, ‘king storm studios’, a brand image and marketing consultant firm and ‘Deewar’ a lifestyle based online art store. Each failure has taught us something new and every time we thought we had it figured out, we didn’t.
