World Remit CEO Ismail Ahmed To Speak At Disrupt London

TechCrunch Disrupt London is coming this December. The two-day conference runs December 5 to 6 in the Olympic Village’s Copper Box Arena and features Startup Alley and Startup Battlefield where one startup will take home £30,000. You can buy early-bird tickets for Disrupt London here.

We’re delighted to announce that we will be joined by the founder and CEO of WorldRemit, Ismail Ahmed.

For Ismail, founding WorldRemit was the culmination of 20 years’ experience in the money transfer industry – spanning academic, consulting and in-house roles. Before setting-up his own business, he worked for the United Nations Remittance Programme, helping African money transfer companies comply with tough anti-money laundering rules introduced after the 9/11 attacks.

Ismail has published widely-cited research on the effect of remittances in Somaliland following the country’s civil war.

He holds an MSc and PhD from the University of London and an Executive MBA from London Business School.

TechCrunch Disrupt is a big event.
