Usman Iftikhar is the co-founder of Catalysr, an accelerator program that assists refugees and migrapreneurs to achieve their startup dreams. A mechanical engineer by trade, Usman arrived in Australia in 2013 and like many skilled migrants and refugees before him, he found there were barriers to getting work. Rather than remain disillusioned Usman took matters into his own hand and started an entrepreneur program that helps others get their start. Today Cataysr has helped over 100 migrapreneurs and spawned over 30 new enterprises. Did we mention he’s also the Commonwealth Young Person of the Year!
