When I think of a problem solver and a person that finds opportunities everywhere, I think of Uzayr. He has thaught me that you should not stop working to reach your dreams, because if you put in the effort, things are going to come your way. Uzayr is that person you want to have when the challenges come.
Uzayr mentored my team to develop Findly platform for the Entrepreneurship Co-op organised by Algonquin college. He guided us through his elaborate experience in building tech startups. He was always very supportive in building our pitch deck, by showing and guiding us through detailed examples. He also helped us improve our ideas and in developing the infrastructure of the app.
We are very excited for his Hostclass endeavour and are positive that it has the potential to reform the existing online learning experience
Hostclass is a timely solution to the new reality of virtual teaching requirements as a result of COVID-19. The founding team has a passion for creating a learning environment where teachers are able to best support and focus on their students while providing an engaging and intuitive platform where students are able to engage, grow, and collaborate.
Having collaborated with Uzayr for the past 2 years, I affirm that he is a creative thinker who hustles his way into solutions. I have seen Uzayr successfully manage tech teams, work on partnerships, and fundraise at the same time. Uzayr is the type of person who triages his responsibilities for maximum effect.
I met Uzayr through Algonquin College’s Entrepreneurship Office and learnt about his startup, Hostclass. One of my peers was looking for an educational platform and I had to opportunity to take the demo. I have nothing but great things to say about Hostclass, and Uzayr’s leadership for scheduling a demo on such short notice. I am so excited to see what they accomplish next!
Uzayr is an extremely capable and goal-oriented individual who focuses on fixing problems and providing concise and efficient solutions for everyone. He always looks at the big picture and assures that every single detail is being addressed. Moreover, he is very easy to work with and creates a positive and contributive environment for everyone within the team no matter what his position is. He is a very level-headed person who knows how to build a team based on everyone’s strengths and has a great balance in being a lead and a friend.
Uzayr is a great leader and entrepreneur. His ability to work through the tough challenges of a startup and rally up a team around him is his greatest asset. His vision around Hostclass is big and bold. He has been working diligently for past year to launch the product and I am excited to see how it grows in coming years.
