How Ashif Mawji leads the way for Edmonton's startup entrepreneurs

Ashif Mawji’s parents don’t really understand what he does for a living. It’s not because they don’t care. On the contrary: his dad clipped all the newspaper articles his son turned up in over the years.

“But he still didn’t know what I did,” says Mawji, between sips of chocolaty frappuccino shortly after 9 a.m. one recent, chilly summer morning.

That’s because Mawji (Computer Systems Technology ’92) is an entrepreneur – a profession made slightly more nebulous by the fact that, at just 41, he already qualifies as a serial entrepreneur. He only stays with something until he’s satisfied with the results and ready to move on, which adds to mom and dad’s confusion.
