What Attendees Say
"Force Of Nature"
Once Khurram became a part of the working group it became very clear that not only had we found the person who would lead our entrepreneurial venture of setting up the Entrepreneurship Center but that actually we needed to get out of the way and let him roar past.
Khurram is a force of nature, a dynamo, full of ideas and enthusiasm and a deep well of knowledge of everything entrepreneurial and innovative. His ties to the world of tinkerers, innovators and madcap thinkers brought enormous excitement into the center but his signature contribution was building the link to world of angel financing, venture capital and project financing.

"He Is Gifted"
These are difficult shoes to fill. LCE was built in string foundations by Khurram which makes it that much easier for us to take it forward. Khurram is truly gifted. He is clear about what his own and organisation objectives are and he aligns them effortlessly. His understanding of what entrepreneurship means is faultless. He is gifted when it comes to analysing a business opportunity and can articulate concepts better than almost anyone I have come across.
