Scrybe Founder Faizan Buzdar speaks with ITLoW
On a recent trip to Islamabad, I had the opportunity to drop in on Faizan Buzdar and the Scrybe team. Faizan spoke to me about the journey of Scrybe todate, and what we can expect from them in the future.
Scrybe took the world by storm with the ‘viral’ video they used for their beta launch on YouTube. It created such a buzz that even the likes of Adobe, New York Times, CNET, Wired, ZDNet and Gartner had to get up and take notice. They received rave reviews from almost all technology blogs and went on to raise their first round of funding from none other than Adobe Systems and LMKR.
A graduate of GIKI, Faizan had more than 7 years of Product Management experience in Enterprise class products, prior to founding Scrybe.
His passion for User Experience and Human Computer Interaction (HCI), is apparent in the many talks he has given at various universities and at P@SHA events to which he has been invited. Internationally, some of the key events he has spoken at include Adobe Engage at Adobe Headquarters, at The future of Web applications in London and Under the Radar at the Microsoft Mountainview Campus.
In this interview, Faizan talks about the journey so far, the product itself, what he has learned, the team he has put together and where he thinks they are headed. There is a lot to learn from Faizan’s experience and the passion and persistence that he has shown since the early days of Scrybe. He is extremely excited by the future of technology and and the role that he and his team are playing and expect to play in the development of very cutting edge products.
Faizan also talks about the emerging eco-system in Pakistan, the willingness to share, a sense of community that has begun to form, a lot of events that brings people together – all very welcome because it helps budding entrepreneurs in more ways than one can imagine.
The picture above shows Faizan Buzdar, with key team member Sabika Nizam, in front of a wall with loads of clippings from various international media – praising the amazing product that this young company launched in beta.
