Mahboob & Irfan D – Zraya – CIO Angel Network
Founders Mahboob and Irfan D are seen pitching Bangalore-based Zraya – an ecommerce Startup selling customizable office furniture online.
Zraya aims to become a one-stop source for personalized furniture working with modern materials and processed with sustainable materials, modern processes and localized manufacturing.
The founders personally experienced difficulty furnishing their office. Both finding manufacturers and the right price was a challenge. Their search led them to workshops that worked with metal and wood. Having experienced these challenges first hand they decided to solve this problem for others too. They launched Zraya.com with functional furniture, that still remains the core of what they do.
Founder, Mahboob has prior Startup and has worked in San Francisco and Dubai. He comes from a Biotech background. His co-founder Irfan has a Masters in Embedded Systems from Finland and has past work experience in QA, development and in home interior designing.
