Adnan Imtiaz Halim is one of the successful entrepreneurs, who is the CEO and Co-founder of Sheba.xyz. They launch Sheba.xyz in July 2016. This is one of the successful startups in Bangladesh.
He graduated from AIUB. Then he works for Grammenphone, Nokia, Ericson, and Quebec. While working here he realizes that this is not his place, he wanted something own which also have to be a long run and benefited for the society too and something from he can earn money. Working for others made him felt that there will be no differences if he left.
He also gets job offers from Australia and Singapore but he always wanted to do something in Bangladesh. He also wanted to make a change in lifestyle for society. He wanted to do something which will give him the freedom and will add
positivity in society.
That’s where Sheba.xyz comes from, but this was not easy for him because to do a start-up one need fund, proper plan and the ability to take the risk. I’ll start with a story here, for the first thing he did, he went to his big brother for money and his brother said they a good idea but do they ready for taking the risk?
Though Adnan Imtiaz was ready this makes him think again, because it’s not easy to
leave the job and start a business while you a have a family and this might make a huge difference in the lifestyle they are living. On that time the CEO of Quebec offers him to continue as the consultant but he will get the same salary as before and have to come for only just 2 days.
But he refused the offer because he didn’t want any backup plan so that the only option he left to success. Then he realizes that he has to make sure the business set perfectly in the market and rushing won’t lead them to success. They took enough time to think and they also change a lot in the business plan.
Then he did market analysis, sales study and 360-degree running organization study for 2 years. They also make the business plan in June 2015 but take 14 months to understand the market and the services they will provide, that’s why they launch Sheba.xyz in July 2016. Their vision was always futuristic.
Sheba.xyz has almost 450 resources. Service businesses are risky but this leads them to
opportunities. Adnan Imtiaz Halim always focuses on making the product perfect and not to rush.
Now Adnan Imtiaz Halim focuses on technology because they want to make the company a global company by 2022. Adnan Imtiaz Halim now maintains a ratio on an employee that there has to be 1 engineer in 8 employees. He is a risk-taker and a successful entrepreneur. In Bangladesh, it is not easy to run a service business and make it trustworthy and successful but Adnan Imtiaz Halim did it really well in a very short time.
