Immad Akhund is co-founder of Heyzap. Heyzap is a website which primarily helps game developers, distribute their social games outside of social networking sites, whilst still retaining the features that made them all so popular.
The site was launched in January 2009 and they managed to do enough to secure Y-Combinator funding by the end of March. This start up period can be such hard work but it can be the most exciting time.
The various widgets and tools on offer allow website and blog owners to allow these social games to their own sites and at the same time increase traffic and user retention. The company was founded in 2009 and is not Immad Akhunds first venture.
Immad who studied Computer Science at Cambridge until his graduation in 2005, also started a company called Revamp. Revmap provided location based services with more of a customer focus.
He was also co-founder of Y-Combinator Clickpass, which was sold in 2008.
Immad loves coming up with ideas and seeing them come true. There is a great satisfaction when an idea is built up and completed.
Entrepreneur Immad is interested in sports, travel and self improvement, He also has his own blog which many people have these days, but it really is a great tool in promoting yourself and generating traffic for your site.
