Hey! I’m Talal. I’m a content strategist with 9 years of experience.
I was employee # 1 at ProPakistani (news startup) and in six years, I grew it from 1 to 17 million pageviews per month, 1 to 45 employees, and helped increase revenues by 11x.
It’s currently the largest independent news publisher in the country and among the top 75 websites in the country.
Before that, I was employee # 5 at GSM Nation (unlocked phones before they were a thing) and scaled it for 2 years until it was acquired.
I’m currently a fellow at On Deck First 50 and working on a news app for people who are tired of filtering through a cacophony of noise to stay informed.
