About Zain

I am passionate about using technology to solve real problems and looking for a technical co-founder who shares my commitment to making an impact in the world. I am working on a prototype to make education more affordable for everyone. I have secured angel investor interest and am working to test the concept. The idea is still in its early stages, so I am definitely flexible and open to developing/adapting it together (or hearing other ideas) as we work through the process.

Who am I?
I am a recent MBA grad from NYU committed full-time to building a great start-up that adds value to the world. Previously, I have worked in technology for 5 years as a project manager (among other roles) at a Fortune 100 firm and have also started my own ventures in the past. I love the excitement of building something new! I am passionate about crowdsourcing, crowdfunding, and finding new and interesting ways to solve tough problems. I have previous startup/consulting experience and have also done some web design/programming, so I certainly appreciate the technical challenges of a new startup. And finally, I believe that work and play can and should co-exist.

Who am I looking for?
A technical co-founder -- You are someone who has a love for technology and building something from the ground up. You share my passion for making an impact and can commit the time and energy needed for us to build something of value together. Technical skills aside, you are comfortable with taking a lean and iterative approach to building a startup and ideally interested in working on both the technical and business side of things as a true partner. You believe that work and play can and should co-exist.
