I was born in the first days of the ’90s, almost when WWW, Windows 3.0, and Photoshop came into existence. As the son of a computer programmer, I grew up staring at the black screen of the MS-DOS, turning the PCMag glossy pages, and writing QBasic and FoxPro codes out of curiosity.
By designing a website for a travel agency and receiving my first dollar at the age of 12, I experienced the seductive feeling of making money. At 15 received an award from M. Khatami -former president of Iran- for creating an all-inclusive tourism website. Until 22, I worked with different companies to save money for my personal projects.
At 22, being the CTO at one of the top 10 web hosting companies in Iran, I resigned to mix what I love and what I know to make a long-lasting impact. 2nate, the crowdfunding platform, launched. It helped tens of thousands of people have a better future and helped me find out my life mission: To Achieve prosperity by assisting people in having better lives through leveraging technology.

Since years ago, I’ve focused to grow my skills in entrepreneurship and business management. Bars show how confident I am in these areas (+ trying to be humble):
Although technical areas are not my main focus anymore, having a technical background always comes in handy. These are the technical areas that I have exposure:
I have had the pleasure of working with Moe since he was managing 2nate, the largest and first-ever crowd sourcing platform for Persian speakers around the world. Moe is an extraordinary person with unique people skills. He can surprise you with radical innovative ideas and at the same time he is open to insights from his teammates and clients regardless of their disciplinary backgrounds. Another quality of Moe is his presentation skills. I have seen him managing and hosting large conferences as well as pitching business ideas to small groups of people. Regardless of the nature of events and audiences, he can impress everyone and communicate information clearly and effectively. I strongly recommend Moe without reservation.
What I like about Moe is his honesty, his capability in team-building, and his leadership potentials. His technical background and knowledge are placed in an intersection of tech and product design which allow him to have unique potentials in high-level planning while being practical and goal-oriented.
An unstoppable passionate individual. I know Mohi since 2013 when we were working on our startups. Mohi’s dedication to his vision was exemplary. I observed how he pushed himself forward to make his company mature and successful, and helped others along the way. Mohi has a creative and entrepreneurial mindset. I can’t find any challenge hard enough to stop him from achieving his goals in his career.
Moe is the most purpose-driven person I know. He was my first employer and the passion I saw in him made me even more interested in the startup world.
