Khurram Samad of GeniTeam talks to ITLoW
There was a time, when he was studying Computer Science at FAST Lahore, that all Khurram Samad wanted from life was the opportunity to work at Techlogix Lahore – in fact it was what his parents wished and prayed for as well. So can you imagine how happy they were when Khurram graduated and landed a job at Techlogix? It was like a dream come true.:)
So having landed his dream job, what made him leave and start his own company? Well, once Khurram was there, enjoying his work, learning from the Masters – I refer of course to Kewan and Salman, the two MIT classmates behind Techlogix – he thought to himself “Great as this is, I deserve more”. So he started a company; unfortunately it failed in about 3 months. Did this deter him? Not at all. He dusted off his disappointment and started all over again. Some time during this period, he did his MBA from LUMS.
Today Khurram Samad in the founder of GeniTeam, a young company based in Lahore, earning hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue developing Web 2.o and Mobile 2.o applications. The team of 20, comprising software engineers, QA people, graphic designers and Biz Dev people, have to their credit more than a handful of applications that have been developed for the iPhone. Exciting stuff indeed! The company is presently working on more apps for various mobile platforms – the Apple iPhone, Google Android and Blackberry Storm, to name just a few.
Watch Khurram’s interview on “In the Line of Wire” on the CIO Webstudio, and hear how the company got to where they are and what their plans are for the future.
