About Me

I am all passionate about helping to create fast-growing startups. Centered on values, recruit the best talent, and develop them with a pace of rockets. I have mentored over 50 startups in addition to my job at techaz as Managing Director. I am also organized more than 40 international & regional events like conferences, hackathons & fireside chats. I am responsible for fostering engagement opportunities and managing dedicated programs to add value to our global networks of startups, companies, digital innovators, mentors, investors, government agencies, universities, industry experts, and media-across various industries (FinTech & CyberSecurity, Media-Tech, Health Tech, Commerce, Smart City & IoT, AI, Blockchain). I'm also a failure enthusiast, passionate entrepreneur, and supporter of the Azerbaijan startup ecosystem. My personal belief that the mother of innovation is a failure, motivated me to be a local organizer of the Azerbaijani chapter of Fuckup Nights, a global movement and event series that shares stories of professional failure.
