My guest for Episode 75 of The Startup Playbook Podcast is Ahmed Haider, the co-founder of Zookal and Flirtey.
All founders know how difficult it can be to run a business, but it is infinitely harder to run 2 successful, multi-million dollar companies at the same time!
Someone who makes this look easy is Ahmed Haider. Ahmed dropped out of his University degree to focus full time on Zookal, an online platform that allows students to buy and rent textbooks.
From having just 2 weeks runway remaining, Ahmed and his team have hustled to build Zookal to generating $20M revenue in the last year and having raised over $7.5M in funding
If that wasn’t enough, Ahmed went on to start his second company, drone delivery startup Flirtey, which earlier this year raised a $16M round of funding.
