Making the world better through creating software and teaching
 

I am Amir Anzur and I am an Internet entrepreneur. I have advised clients such as Amazon, Intel, Google, Microsoft, Samsung and Xbox as well as the Governments of Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Pakistan and United Kingdom on internet strategy, technology, marketing and innovation.

Alongside my own ventures, I help entrepreneurs start and grow their businesses online. You can book a FREE Internet coaching strategy call in which I can see if my team or I can help you in anyway – or simply give you some advice on how to get to your Internet goals faster.

I provide knowledge and people to help you become successful. Either you can learn from me what has taken me over two decades to learn or I can hire people for you whom I will train and manage for you to help you become successful.

An average University graduate in Peshawar, Pakistan will earn USD 150 per month while an average University graduate from London, UK will earn USD 2,700 per month. This difference in wealth is what I can help you capitalize on and get a great team from a different part of the world.

You will usually find me in my home studio in London, UK while my team is based around the world but we also have an office in Peshawar, Pakistan.

My Story

I was born in a town called Hull in the North East of England in 1977 while my father was studying for his PhD at the University of Hull. After a few months of enjoying the British weather my family moved to Pakistan so I had some of my earliest education there. A few years later we moved to Los Angeles, California where I tasted the American Elementary school system

At the age of 8 we moved to Brussels, Belgium. This is where I had my most formative years growing up from the age of 8 to until I finished high school at 18. I attended the International School of Brussels (www.isb.be). At ISB I began to hang out with some of the richest and well connected people in the world (the former school of Steve Balmer the former CEO of Microsoft). A tuition fee of close to USD 50,000 meant that only a certain demographic could afford the school. In the meantime, I would also visit Pakistan in the summers and visit some of the poorest in the world.  

Seeing this disparity of wealth from such an early age had a big impact on me and shaped a lot of my purpose and goals in life. Seeing the world from both the rich and poor firstly taught me that money doesn’t necessarily lead to happiness. Everyone has problems - a rich kid in a London high school might be figuring out how to be cool in front of her friends and a poor kid from Karachi might be figuring out how to get her next meal. But problems are problems. Obviously it is nicer to have certain types of problems.

After graduation from ISB, I went to the University of Manchester, UK where I studied Computer Science with Business and Management graduating with a First Class (Hons) in 1998 and graduated at top of my class. Ever since an early age I have had a knack for computers and if there was one subject which I could ace without studying it was Computer Science. I also had a passion for computers as I could already see from the early 1990s that computers would have an impact on all industries so I wanted to be involved in this field. I also knew that eventually I wanted to run my own business and help people and knowing computers would help me in all sorts of businesses as well as have a big impact on society.

After graduation from University, I began my career at Accenture, consulting Fortune 500 companies such as Boots Retail, Microsoft, Oracle, Sky and Virgin. As an example project, I sold USD 6 million of consulting work to a major telecoms client in Ireland. I was responsible for the Profit & Loss for the account and managed a team of 30 to help deliver the work over a 9 month period. My experience in consulting gave me the confidence that even some of the best run and most profitable companies in the world have many systems and processes that can be improved.

In 2003, I went on to start my own business as a solo programmer based in my bedroom in North London. I eventually grew the team to 30 people and we acquired over 70 customers including Amazon, Google, Intel, Samsung and Xbox. I went on to win the European prize for innovation for a mobile app we developed for Amazon. After successfully running the company for over 4 years I sold the business to a larger industry player. Running my own business gave me an insight into the challenges that entrepreneurs and small businesses face in bringing their ideas to reality.

After running my company, I took a break from the real world to get a Masters of Business Administration from IMD Business School in Lausanne, Switzerland. It was here again that I met some of the richest people in the world as not many people can afford to invest $100,000 in their MBA in their late 20s and early 30s. These people were committed to gaining the right knowledge and skills and had access to money to invest in the best business education in the world.

I went on to consult governments on strategy, technology, marketing and innovation including the governments of Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Pakistan and the United Kingdom. This gave me an insight into having an impact at a bigger level of society and taught me some of the challenges and opportunities of working with governments.

I am passionate about helping people see how technology can make their lives simpler. I have not only been innovating with technology in London but have also setup companies from Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Dublin, Geneva, Lausanne, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Peshawar, Islamabad, Lahore, Karachi and Sydney. Travelling while working on digital businesses has helped me understand what each of these cities offers and has given me insights on spreading Internetism globally.

Along my own journey I had several of my own breakthroughs in mindset. I suffered many depressions, many moments of weakness, heartbreaks, losing in business etc. But along the period I read hundreds of books, attended seminars like Tony Robbins and studied courses like Neuro-linguistic programming. Slowly friends started to ask to be coached by me to help them find and achieve their goals. I then started to teach others about creating wealth online.

As I originated from Pakistan I had a passion for helping the developing world accelerate their move online. But I found that few would invest in their training and mindset - something which is much more acceptable in the West where people spend more money on developing themselves. So I came up with another unique business model where I charge customers in the West to build their businesses and my team helps hire, train and manage their team offshore. This is the Masters of Business Creation programme at Webpreneur Academy.

Just as I teach about creating software and internet products and services at Webpreneur Academy, I also create my own software. Among others there is mindGigs.com which helps people buy and sell knowledge. This could be teaching online or working for someone through the Internet.  

I have put as much of my knowledge as I could in two of my books which are free and open source: "Internetism - How to create wealth in the Internet economy" and "Wealthology - Why some countries and people are rich and how the others can catch up faster" (to be released soon). These are already used in hundreds of schools and Universities and I have allowed for them to be photocopied and printed without permission.  If you go through Internetism and take action, it will help you make your first USD 100 online.

If you are interested in having a chat about your Internet goals then do book a FREE strategy coaching call with me (only available for a limited time) and I will see if my team or I can help you get to your Internet goals faster.


Frequently asked question

Here are a few answers to our most common questions

Who are you?

I am Amir Anzur, a 44 year old internet believer who is currently based in London, UK.

Can you teach me to quickly make money online?

No. I don't have a simple solution for you to quickly make money online. However, I can teach you the basics of wealth creation and how to get started with using the web to earn an income

Just as there are thousands of ways to earn an income in the real world, there are thousands of ways to earn through the web. You can get started by reading my free books. If you aren’t interested in reading you can listen to it or watch some of my videos on YouTube and Vimeo

One of the ways you can earn an income is through spreading the word about Webpreneur Academy in which you can earn anywhere from USD 225 to USD 21,000 in commissions depending on what the students signs up for (yes - that is for a single signup!).

You can also earn 5 % commissions on mindGigs.com and join the affiliate commission.

If you are influencer or a creative person you will be able to figure out how to make money through this. This could be for instance inviting me to your podcast or allowing me to guest post on your blog and embedding your affiliate link in the post.

Where are you from?

My mother was born in Indonesia, my father was born in India and I was born in England. I hold a British and Pakistani passport and have lived in the United States, United Arab Emirates, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and Pakistan while having travelled to countless more countries.

If you had to put me in your nationalistic boxes which John Lennon detested than you could label me as a British-Pakistani. I am proud of my roots but I also would like to consider myself as a citizen of the world first.

And after all my travels I am also now a proud Londoner where I plan to be based as this city has one of the best opportunities in the world to create wealth and impact the world!


Who do you target for your courses?

Typically people that join Webpreneur Academy have some real world experience and might be working in a corporate job. They have made their employers money and would like to now do this for themselves. Their opportunity cost to leave their jobs might be high so they want to invest in a business they can initially do on the side.  

This is where we help with Webpreneur Academy as we supply the team that can do the work for them.  We also help students looking to understand the Internet economy and how they can find a role in the online world.

Can i spread the word and earn money?

If you spread the word about Amir Anzur, Webpreneur Academy or mindGigs and someone you know signs up you will receive 5 % of the income I generate for 1 year from the date of their initial signup. So if someone signs up for an USD 4,500 you will generate USD 225. Visit WebpreneurAcademy.com or mindGigs.com to further understand what they offer and read about their affiliate programme.
