“If you cannot see where you are going, ask someone who has been there before,”  Akhtar’s father was also a tech geek and an IT expert who mentored him in his career and skills. He learned from his father how to deal with, taught him multiple programming languages and developed an entrepreneurship mindset inside him.

Over the course of seven years, Akhtar focused on his programming and communication skills, worked with hundreds of SMEs and large-scale corporations, polished his programming abilities, and learned team management and other skills viable for successful entrepreneurship.

His life was satisfactory; however, Akhtar knew that only those who risk going too far could find out how far they could go. He wanted to do something extraordinary that nobody else was doing. He faced numerous setbacks. One of the initial ones was his attempt at establishing an IT company in 2008, a startup that faltered when he was 18.
