Who is “Naeem Zafar”

I am a world citizen and founding CEO of an enterprise mobility company called Bitzer Mobile (www.bitzermobile.com) which was recently bought by Oracle.  I live and work in Silicon Valley California.

My career was shaped in the high-tech industry having started or worked at seven companies and advised several dozen startups. I have distilled my knowledge and personal experiences in my writings and teaching to help guide entrepreneurs all over the world. I travel frequently to lecture on a variety of topics related to starting businesses and the life of an entrepreneur. I am a faculty member of the Berkeley-Haas business school at the University of California.  I believe that entrepreneurship can be a powerful tool to alleviate poverty and extremism from the world and “Social Businesses” can fill the gap where public institutions often fall short.
