Ali Nazar

COO

Ali has spent his career helping high growth startups scale by applying technology and process excellence to power great people to do great things.

He started his career as a staff engineer and then product manager at Digital Island, a pioneering company during the dotcom boom of the late 1990s that built one of the most robust data networks in the world.  He went on to co-found a real estate startup named SalesTeamLive in 2003, building a CRM application from scratch to support the pipeline development efforts of thousands of real estate investors around the United States.  One of his clients was Doug Brien, and eventually Ali joined Doug and Colin as the Chief Technology Officer of Waypoint Homes, where he was the architect of Waypoint’s industry leading technology platform that powered the purchase and management of over 17,000 homes across the U.S.

Ali is passionate about business being an engine for positive social change, and fully embraces Mynd’s mission to make a positive impact in the communities where we work.  Besides working at Mynd, Ali is also an author, radio DJ, husband, and father of 3 kids in Berkeley, CA.
