How is it that the richest country in the world has a third world in its belly?

As PayActiv’s founding CEO, Safwan Shah is inspired every day by the transformative impact that PayActiv can bring to the lives of millions of people living paycheck to paycheck.

His previous stints include being a rocket scientist at a NASA Center where a number of his experiments were part of the space program.

Besides science and entrepreneurship, Safwan has also taught at Haas School of Business, UC Berkeley and Baskin School of Engineering at UC Santa Cruz. Safwan is a graduate of the distinguished Stanford Executive Program and has a Masters/Ph.D. from UC Boulder.
