I can give you advice on how you can approach tech blogs, media, the press, etc.
I can provide feedback on your web design/product design.
I've grew Viatask from zero to over 25,000 users in a few months with $0 on marketing.
I've organized over half a dozen meetup's, keynotes, and will be hosting Silicon Valley Summit May '13.
I've had the opportunity to meet over a few dozen VC's and Angel investors in the past few months. I can teach you how to reach out to the right investor for your start-up. If I really like your product and know an investor, I might also introduce them to you via email (under certain conditions).
Shahed is a very smart, and innovated guy. He knows what he's doing, and when he needs something, he'll go out and find it, no matter what the case is. If you ever have a chance to work with him, do it! He has a lot of passion, and determination, and a drive that you can't find in most people.
Shahed was a valuable asset at our Lean Startup Machine in Palo Alto. As a volunteer, he was really enthusiastic and eager to help in any way he could. He's incredibility motivated and such a hustler. Can't wait to see what he does next!
Shahed took one look at DealMeHealth.com and understood our business model. He then offered targeted solutions and we are now implementing them. He is very, very smart and has a six sense in business that would make a 45 year old drool. He is also a talented coder and the CEO/ Co-Founder of ViaTask. I predict ViaTask will be the sweatheart of Chicago. He will be very successful in any endeavor he pursues. I am proud to call him my friend and someone I can run ideas by.- Steve Omans, Founder and CEO of Deal Me Health, LLC
Shahed is an incredibly motivated individual. He is an uncanny connector of people that puts thoughts into action. It is incredible how much he is able to accomplish in such a short period of time. Light years of intelligence beyond his peers, he never ceases to amaze me. He is able to balance an unbelievable amount of competing forces and accomplish what is important. Anyone working with him (or for him) would be incredibly lucky.
Shahed is a startup rock star in the making and all around cool guy. During SPARK Chicago 2011, he displayed creativity, determination, and hustle. If you get a chance, have coffee, take a meeting, or cut a deal with him (but don't go for drinks, he's only 16!). I look forward to seeing what he comes up with next.
