His genius has evolved from decades of innovative business practices and management, and with his new venture you can borrow what he is, what he’s learned and what makes him the powerhouse that he is.

In the past he has held vital positions at the likes of Pakistan Software Houses Association (PASHA) and the managing committee of the Federation of Pakistan Chamber of Commerce (FPCCI), and his service to the community has led to him receiving the Corporate Philanthropy Award by the Pakistan Center for Philanthropy (PCP) in 2009. As an avid follower of the Steve Jobs philosophy, Humayun “Stays hungry”, “stays foolish ” and follows his heart. He is an optimistic yet realistic man, influenced by art, coffee and music.
