SHEIKH MOHAMMED IRFAN

WELCOME

I am Irfan, an entrepreneur, advocate, strategist, inventor, and an idealist. My view of the world is defined by my varied interests and involvement in the fields of technology, society, empowerment, and business. I am driven by challenges and address them through individual and collective efforts.

Ultimately, my goal is to create a sustainable world enhanced by technology, people, empathy and effective resource distribution.

Now, I am on a mission to break barriers, boundaries, bias, and shortcomings across the world. This is deeply rooted in my personal history where I faced challenges from having access to capital or appropriate people to build on my idea or just not having the environmental or social structure that emphasizes around transparency, credibility, merits or sustainability. My collective entourage consists of leaders, innovators, corporates, communities, and investors. The resultant effect is improved awareness, facilitation, and execution. Join my growing network to participate in co-creating a better world.

Sheikh Mohammed Irfan : Global Thinker Discussing Possibilities

Blockchain blossoms in Haiti

The technological revolutions that have shaped the modern world have thus far all taken root in rich countries. Today, a new disruptive technology is breaking that mold – blockchain. Nowhere is this plainer than Haiti, the poorest country in the Western hemisphere and home to a blossoming range of projects using blockchain technologies to solve problems in ordinary people’s lives.

WHY BLOCKCHAIN IS THE SOLUTION TO THE SERVICE INDUSTRY

I would like to introduce a revolutionary platform that was founded by 8 Oxford Alumni with a vision to disrupt the global gig economy. GIG9 is a peer-to-peer decentralized self-regulated international ecosystem, directly connecting local service providers and users, powered by blockchain-based smart contracts.
