Shazia’s journey in tech began when her passion for technology led her to study Computer Science at the University of Maryland. She started her career as a web/java developer and quickly moved up the corporate ranks to management at the project and program levels, as well as Director and CTO positions. Over her career she has been responsible for technology programs as large as $1B.
She has since founded 2 startups, one focused on eCommerce and the other in Mobile.
Her first startup, ClickClang – which was focused on mobile video, was early (when the Blackberry was the smartest phone around). Shazia learned the ups and downs of founding a startup that was early, and founded in a recession. Despite being started in such tough times she had an acquisition offer pre-launch, that she regrets turning down. Her second startup CoutureMafia, which launched in April of 2012, was acquired in a mere 4 months.
Shazia has worn many hats but likes none better than that of entrepreneur, founder and out of the box thinker.
