At the age of only 14, Faisal began what would be the first of many businesses: cobbling together stereo components to sell from his father’s home in Dhaka, Bangladesh in order to save the money he would need to support his plan to study in the United States. Since then, he has traveled many miles and his journey continues. Today he is the founder of SHADOKA, MiND2MiND Exchange, B2B ForeSight, Agamie and other companies.
“Everything connects. Making connections between disparate things is the key to creative thinking. The ritualistic practice of thinking about how different things relate to each other, and how distinct things could be combined to make something completely different, results in sustainable innovation. When we recognize the constellation of relationships within our ecossytem we can begin to understand their shared alignment, a process that I describe as convergence – the overlapping nature of art, science, and spirituality.
The ultimate objective is to produce a wealth of new ideas, dynamic innovations, and sustainable opportunities and methods of measuring them. Thus, financial success is a byproduct of what we do.”
- Faisal Hoque, Entrepreneur, Author
