Maliha M Quadir, founding Managing Director of Shohoz.com, has been recognized by World Economic Forum (WEF) as one of the world’s Young Global Leaders of 2017.
The Bangladeshi businesswoman and technology entrepreneur was recognized for her startup Shohoz.com, an online travel ticketing and reservation service provider.
The WEF describes its annual group of WEF Young Global Leaders as “exceptional next-generation leaders who are bold, brave, action-oriented, and entrepreneurial who have two main characteristics: they have achieved their success young and have committed their lives to making a positive impact on society”.
The young entrepreneur launched Shohoz.com in 2014 after gaining extensive experiences in digital services and investment banking.
Maliha Quadir ran Vistaprint’s digital business in global emerging markets out of Singapore and worked at Morgan Stanley in New York, Standard Chartered Bank in Singapore, and Nokia.
Now, the Havard Business School graduate is included in a select group of individuals under 40 who are radically changing their industry, policy-making and society.
