During my recent visit to Karachi, I was able to take time out and Visit the office of Riksof, CEO of Riksof Khurram Ali is a very old and dear friend, we started our careers around the same time at the same starting point. His excellence took him ahead of me, now he is the CEO of Riksof, their VCred product taking off (and its also selected for MITCEF BAP). My visit was long over due, Khurram picked me up from FAST and took me to a beautiful building.
The building was stunning from outside, and exceptionally designed from inside as well, the glass lift and lighted floor gave a very exquisite look, and immediately the question popped in my mind, which I asked Khurram as well was does spending this much a good move by a startup, to which he replied he had to make this investment to attract brightest people (some thing which I would address in another post).
His own office had card based entries which meant every body who was employed could come in and go at will no closing or opening time needed. The view from his room was outstanding as we could see whole of the Clifton from it (and Zardari’s residence too ) it was a small cozy office with one meeting room and one executive room, with developers toiling to meet their deadlines.
