After working for about ten years in the telco industry, Nazmul Sheik, co-founder of Shajgoj, was eager for a fresh challenge. At the time he was stationed in Nigeria as a consultant with MTN, Africa’s largest telecommunications provider, and earned a decent salary. Despite a fairly luxurious lifestyle and strong career growth prospects, Sheik felt his job was boring and mundane. His home country of Bangladesh was experiencing a spurt of economic growth and Sheik was convinced there were opportunities waiting for him. He soon quit his job to move back home.
