Keeping tabs on digital payments
Armed with a business degree, Abdulaziz Fahad Al Jouf left for the United States to pursue a second bachelor’s degree. He searched for an economical school in the US and landed in Missouri where he studied software engineering at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
During that time, he founded the first of several businesses, starting out as a spice trader, sourcing from India and exporting to the US. A few ventures later, he moved to Hong Kong to launch an e-commerce site that quickly passed the million-dollar mark but faced innumerable operational challenges with logistics and payments. Determined to solve his logistical burden, he returned to Bahrain and started a logistics company to support his e-commerce operations.
But Abdulaziz remained restless and knew there was more to be done on the payments side.
