A serial entrepreneur with a proven track record of success, Karim was the visionary behind Pawtocol. His initial idea to give pets a home on the blockchain was met with quite a bit of pushpack, even called “crazy” at one point. For Karim, that only added more fuel to his fire as he knew there was an incredible opportunity to use blockchain technology to improve the quality of life for pets. Although he credits his team with the company's growth, it was his leadership that guided Pawtocol to a successful acquisition by New Wave Holdings. Moving forward, as the company’s Chief Consultant, Karim will help the team scale and grow the Pawtocol platform into a globally recognized brand that positively disrupts the future of the pet industry.
