About me: Tariq holds a BBA with concentrations in finance, real estate, and international business from Emory University – Goizueta Business School in Atlanta. Upon graduation, Tariq returned to London where he started his career as an analyst at Greensill. There, Tariq worked with clients across EMEA to deliver financial solutions for asset-backed financing, working capital loans and term loans across multiple industries. Tariq spent three years there before moving into the startup space, working for the pre-seed startup, Nutrihub, in raising funds to launch their company.

Tariq was determined to transition his career into venture capital and following his promotion to associate at Greensill, he decided to pursue his MBA at LBS given the many opportunities to expand his network in London, meet with employers in the space, develop his knowledge of the sector and gain an academic advantage through the expertise of the faculty.

In his free time, Tariq loves to travel, watch and play football, weightlift and eat!

Three topics I can be approached about: Finance; career transitioning.
