🎙 About The Episode
“We’re at an age now where knowledge is free and it’s everywhere” – Shahzad Younas
In the episode Ali sits down for a conversation with Shahzad Younas, founder and CEO of Muzmatch. If you haven’t already heard of Muzmatch from their entertaining tube campaigns with slogans including ‘Halal from the other side’ or ‘Time to leave the single market?’ it’s the revolutionary dating app that’s transforming the way Muslims find love and marriage. With over 4 million members and 100,000+ successful marriages thanks to his app, Shahzad is not only a successful entrepreneur but pretty much a real life cupid.
In their conversation Shahzad shares how he quit his job and built the Muzmatch app from scratch, how to make marketing work, the problem with dating app etiquette for Muslim’s and much much more. You’ll leave the episode with an understanding of how to identify and execute business ideas, the importance of forcing yourself to be uncomfortable and even a few tips on finding love and the art of dating.
