Announcing This Year’s Guest Speaker

We’re super excited to announce this year’s guest speaker Haseeb Qureshi!

Haseeb holds a B.S. in Business & Psychology from Carnegie Mellon and a J.D. from University of Tennessee College of Law. He has been a Tennessee licensed attorney since 2011, and a self-taught coder since 2000. While finishing his education, Haseeb had a short stint as a studio manager in Los Angeles, and had been a music recording engineer for years prior.

Haseeb started Avenue Factory in 2012, and won a competitive bid to redesign the City of Knoxville’s website. Since then, Haseeb is known to many as a regional thought leader in digital media and business strategy. Haseeb is an alumni of the inaugural MediaWorks program in 2014, TN’s first digital media accelerator. Haseeb has also served as the first TN instructor of the inaugural YEA! program in TN in 2015, being recruited by the Knoxville Chamber of Commerce.

Currently, Haseeb is the CEO of Audiohand, a TN-native music technology company that betters musicians’ music recording; a recording app that has been downloaded by thousands worldwide since March 2015.
