The kind of companies that operate below the radar is amazing
I circulate amongst a variety of IT companies throughout Pakistan trying to discover what different people are up to so that I can highlight innovation and find out what the needs of companies are. However, every once in a while I meet someone who has been working below the radar and has achieved so much without any of us knowing of their existence.
The other day I ran into one such person. A 30 year old who in the last 3 years has managed to create a multi-million dollar company employing 450 people. He intends to double this number by the end of the year and he says he intends to hit 50,000 employees in 5 years’ time. Normally I would have laughed at such unrealistic ambitions but in his case I did not.
There was something about him that made me take everything he said seriously. He was earnest, enthusiastic, passionate and everything he said made good sense so I had no reason not to believe that he would do exactly what he said he would. I, for one, will keep an eye on his company from now on in.
His company offers services to 33,000 industries around the world. He has 4.5 million registered users on this web portal which gets around 1 billion hits. I am not sure he wants to be in the limelight so I am not going to mention the name of the company or that of the founder. All I can say is, it was wonderful to hear of his achievements and to know about his future plans. I hope he makes it. I have a feeling he will :).
