Iqram Magdon-Ismail is responsible for revolutionizing the way the world exchanges money. A New York-based entrepreneur, he is best known for co-founding the digital payment platform, Venmo. Venmo was acquired by Braintree and went on to be acquired by PayPal for $800 million.
Today, Venmo has over 76 million users and generates over $900 million in revenue – with further plans to exponentially scale their year-over-year growth through their relationship with PayPal.
Prior to starting Venmo, Iqram was raised in Zimbabwe, Zambia and Uganda before immigrating to the United States. He currently spends his time working on Ense, a social voice platform he founded in 2016, which allows users to share information, stories, conversations and more through short audio clips.
He was named one of Inc.’s 30 Under 30 in 2010, and honored as a "Great Immigrant" by the Carnegie Foundation in 2016.
