Nadeem is originally from Mobasa, Kenya and joins the 2013 cohort. The primary focus of his study surrounds the relationship between government policy and business development in Sub Saharan Africa and how business models have adapted to the growing government intervention in the market economy.
Prior to enrolling at Stanford, Nadeem was practicing law at a firm based in Nairobi. He was exposed to the regulatory and commercial framework across countries in East Africa particularly in the oil and gas, energy and real estate sectors.
Nadeem holds a degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics from the University of Oxford and a Law degree from BPP Law School. As an avid skier he is excited about the proximity of Tahoe, especially having been so far away from a slope whilst in Nairobi!
