Spending more than 15 years in the technology industry, Shaikh firmly believes that technology can serve to solve many community issues and serve as an income multiplier to help enable individuals to be more upward socially mobile.
Together with Jin and Maria, Shaikh founded Byte to bring enablement via science, technology and design closer to the community. He plays the role of developing the strategy and future direction of the organisation.
Maria helps organisations to manage the people side of change when implementing new technology or business processes. She uses this same passion to help others in the community, young and old, to learn about technology and innovation.
She met Shaikh and Jin at a volunteer event. Over the years, they have brought numerous ground-up initiatives to life. Within Byte, she plays the role of operationalising programs.
