I have known Nabeel for a few months. We've collaborated on a few ideas (WIP) together and I found that he brought a lot to the table every ... single meeting we've had. He is very methodical in his approach, whether it is giving advice or flashing out a simple idea or embarking on a new ambitious venture. He is an excellent listener, not afraid to ask for help and is eager to learn from others. All must have qualities in a seasoned startup entrepreneur.
