Atif MumtazOn my recent visit to Islamabad for the Startup Insiders session (in which we were partners-in-crime) at NUST and the SEECS Corporate Advisory Council meeting, I had the opportunity to pull Atif Mumtaz aside for a little while and, since I had my flip video handy, I interviewed him for ITLoW.

A graduate of Aichison College Lahore, Western Michigan University and Stanford, Atif is a serial entrepreneur who is passionate about developing innovative solutions using ICT.

He co-founded Personforce and BrightSpyre and has worked for the United Nations, HP, Systems Research and Comsats

Atif also started, and is running, a very successful Tele-healthcare project in rural Pakistan. This is the first of its kind project in rural Mardan district where free healthcare services are extended to the poor and needy using ICT.

He has received numerous awards including “Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2004” from Shell Oil and DHL YES Award for “Young Social Entrepreneur, 2007”. Atif was a Reuters Digital Vision Fellow at Stanford University in 2006 where he focused his studies on social entrepreneurship.

In this episode of ITLoW, Atif talks about the ventures he has been a part of and the advantage he has had working in Pakistan.
