Have spent the last 15 years building internet consumer and b2b companies. 3 successful exists.
Probably the most solid and dedicated individual I have worked with to date. Once committed to something, you can get its going to happen.
I have been working with Murtaza for more than 7 years, through 3 companies that we have co-founded. Each company has "made it", and we're running at a 100% success rate as entrepreneurs.
The reason for that is largely Murti's personal commitment to setting the highest standards of performance and excellence in his own work, and motivating others around him to do the same. Each of the companies that I have run with Murtaza would have turned out very differently if it had not been for something crucial or game-changing that he did when it was needed the most. He is an excellent multi-tasker, and routinely outperforms most people he works with in their key areas. He knows what he can, and cannot do. He will pick his race carefully, one that he knows he can win.
He has built a social network to 1m+ users. He has closed multiple financing rounds with VCs. He has taken PL from 0 to $5m in revenue and profitability.
He'll probably double the value of whatever company he is with. And may just put you out of a job.
Murti is truly a rare individual. Young, smart, energetic, entrepreneurial, and very, very bold. He combines the ability to not only have vision, but surround himself with a team that can execute on it. As a leader he is direct, humble, and fair. As a business leader he is innovative, creative, and honest. Murti will change every industry he decides to!
Murtaza is a true SUPER ENTREPANUER - no bullshit - no silverspoon - no thing to stop him and his partners. A leader as well as a visionary - able to change direction while speeding...
Murtaza is a talented entrepreneur who has guided Peanut Labs and Xuqa to continued success. Its a pleasure working with him and the rest of the team at Peanut Labs / Xuqa.
Murti's warm intensity and can-do attitude gets the job done. He's a natural entrepreneur and perhaps most importantly fun to be around -
Murtaza is an incredibly talented leader. His sense of ethics, moral responsibility, and business strategy is simply astounding. Murtaza gets an A in my book as a partner and colleague.
Murtaza is a dynamic, creative and clear thinking entrepreneur. He is one of those rare gems in Silicon Valley.
Murtaza is one of those few selfstarters - who got from Pakistan to Silicon Valley without even thinking about it. Im a FAN.
Murtaza is an exceptionally smart and creative entrepreneur with an impressive track record of starting and managing businesses, despite his young age. I met him when he was running Xuqa.com and watched as he took the company to profitability within months. Murtaza is an "industry star" in the making.
Murtaza is an energetic leader. You can meet him just once and know he was born to lead. Murtaza is creative, inspiring, passionate, and results oriented. Murtaza knows how to bring ideas into action.
