Founder and CEO, PayActiv
An engineer by training, payments expert by experience and entrepreneur by accident, Safwan is the Founder and CEO of PayActiv. After selling a previous company and entering retirement, Safwan’s commitment to leveling the playing field for the financially vulnerable drove him to launch PayActiv. His work connects the dots between math, economics, history and music. Safwan’s first book, It’s About TIME: How Businesses Can Save the World (One Worker at a Time), turns conventional wisdom on its head and calls for businesses to embrace the mantle of saving the world.
