About irfan

Upon graduating, I was selected into Pakistan's largest incubator, Plan9, on the basis of my first startup. My Project was a mobile theft application used to detect theft of a mobile phone data from intruders. The Application had a web based system form where a user could control the statistics of his data including its control and location, and could also take the photo of the intruder. The interface was very user-friendly and the project was showcased in Dubai Gitex. I also interviewed on Pakistan National television after the success of the application. The startup was acquired by an Australian Investor.

Now I am working on my second startup name Bringthings.com and I have been incubated in Startup52 Newyork brooklyn. The app is in beta stage right now. It will be live in one week or so

As been a CTO of three companies, I have managed and build a lot of projects which specifically include Web and Mobile Apps. I can share the projects based on request. I am willing to help anyone who needs help in technical side as I have around 5 years experience regarding managing big projects
