Markhor - 1800 Year Old Craftsmanship For Gentleman's Shoes

One of the Key Members of the Markhor team, Ali is an OPEN volunteer, who also shared his startup journey at OPEN Launchpad Startup Campaign. His startup Markhor works with indigenous craftsmen in Pakistan to make high end shoes for the modern gentleman. They have just launched their Kickstarter campaign to bring their shoe collection to life. 

New Grounds Food


New Grounds Food began at Northeastern University’s Spring 2013 Husky Startup Challenge with a simple question, “Why can’t we eat our coffee?” Co-Founders Johnny Fayad and Ali Kothari, then freshmen business students, were tired of waking up for their 8 AM financial accounting course without having time for breakfast and, more importantly, their coffee.  

With an apparent problem, and a vision in place, they created New Ground Food’s first product, CoffeeBar: an energy bar infused with an entire shot of espresso.
