Tell us about yourself?

I am an immigrant biomedical researcher, techpreneur, author/editor and traveler having PhD (Cell & Molecular biology), MSc (Biotechnology), MA (Political Sciences) and Diploma (Computer Sciences). I am the co-founder of IMAQPRESS Inc. Canada (A Digital Publishing and Content Management Company) and IMAQ Technologies Inc. (A group of emerging technologies developing startup companies). I have visited 70+ cities of 10+ countries having experience of touching the academic, cultural, technological and innovation ecosystem of south Asia, middle east, Caucuses region and northern Europe (Scandinavian countries).

If you could go back in time a year or two, what piece of advice would you give yourself?

I have focused in past too much on the networking and team expansion from Asia and less focus on the team building from North America. After years, I studied more and choose Canada as my startup destination and establish IMAQPRESS inc. Canada in july 2020. I wish I should focus on team expansion from North America if I go back.

What problem does your business solve?

IMAQPRESS is aimed to create a global impact for Canadian researchers, organizations and brands using the innovative content strategies and unique content management tools.

What is the inspiration behind your business?

When I was MSc student and found more than 70% post graduate students are having issues in writing proposal, projects and publishing a research paper. Universities and institutes have no specific department for content management and so I decided to establish a company to solve this issue and developed innovative protocols to help the early career researchers all over the world.

What is your magic sauce?

Our magic is our unique protocols of content management which are specifically designed to solve issues for young researchers as these are being built by young researchers.

What is the plan for the next 5 years? What do you want to achieve?

To reach out almost every tertiary academic and research institute of north America and to introduce ourselves that how IMAQPRESS can assist them.

What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far?

Immigration to Canada and still waiting for immigration decision by IRCC.

How do people get involved/buy into your vision?

We are providing all which a young researcher from every corner of the world is looking for.
