About Munir

Greetings! My name is Munir (MOO-nee-er) and I am a typical millennial who fell in love with the challenge of entrepreneurship. Throughout my career, I’ve had the opportunity to hold some interesting positions. From Marketing Manager with a regional computer retailer at the age of 20, to being part of the founding team at TP-LINK USA; which helped the company scale from ten employees to over a hundred and revenue from single-digit millions to triple digit millions. My experiences imbued a passion for solving problems and growing businesses, which led me to pivot into the world of tech startups and entrepreneurship.

I am a forward thinking continuous learner who is principled, persistent and comfortable dealing with uncertainty. I bring 11 years of front-line business experience and functional expertise in sales, marketing, business development, management, technology and operations. I’m also versed in startups through my own ventures, incubator residencies and as an advisor for other startups. I’ve hired and led teams, mentored staff, managed projects and developed concepts from idea to market.

If you are looking for someone capable of taking on multiple roles and is passionate about startups, drop me a line. I would love to chat as I’m currently looking for startup opportunities where I can use my skills and knowledge to help accelerate business growth, learn and develop myself.
