Owais Anjum

I've been in technology management and product design for 20 years including many in the Silicon Valley. The last 5 years have been particularly interesting where I built startups, raised money, growth hacked one, failed miserably at another, and established a successful business of helping other companies innovate fast and be more successful at what they do as a business. eMumba wasn’t easy to conceive. It took two years of thinking to quit my very lucrative job as Managing Director of Numetrics and start grounds up all over again. In hindsight, the only regret I have is that I should have done this sooner. Most of my time is now spent in evangelizing the culture of making our customers successful, no matter what it takes. If you ever want to talk, I am just a call away @ 408 dot 462 dot 1816!
