We recently had the opportunity to meet with entrepreneur and CEO of Allied Wallet, Andy Khawaja. The Allied Wallet CEO sat down with us and explained how he built his e-commerce empire, earned a personal wealth evaluation of about $17.9 billion, and why he’s being called the “Creator of Global E-commerce.”
Andy Khawaja comes from humble beginnings as a young entrepreneur with a natural knack for business. Even at an early age, Khawaja saw a world without borders. He spoke five different languages by the age of 13. Khawaja explained to us that as a boy, he already had an appreciation for world cultures and wanted to connect them somehow.
Khawaja is now CEO of one of the largest e-commerce payment solution companies in the world, connecting buyers and sellers from all over the globe, and he built it from the ground up. Venture after venture, Khawaja proves that anything he signs his name next to is bound to be successful because it’s driven by business-savvy experience and relentless passion.
But there’s a reason why Andy Khawaja has been referred to as the “Messiah of Entrepreneurs.” He has an insatiable hunger for success, a wide skill set, and wandering eyes for new opportunities.
During our interview, Khawaja offered an insider look at his newest endeavor, “Model Turned Superstar.”
“Model Turned Superstar” is a new television show produced by Khawaja himself and guided by his fashion industry experience. According to Beverly Hills Times Magazine, Khawaja has already invested about $200 million into the show that he says will connect people all over the world who share a common interest in models and fashion.
Khawaja also tapped into his $17.9 billion fortune (evaluated as of August 1st, 2014) to increase his investments in Google and Apple.
“The CEOs of Google and Apple see things similar to the way I do. They believe in the value of technology. They believe in improving the world and the way the world interacts by putting new products and solutions in the hands of the people,” said Khawaja, “That’s something I see value in – something I’ll invest in.”
Entrepreneur Andy Khawaja clearly has no intention of slowing down and after speaking with him, it’s clear that his passion is what drives him from country to country, doing business in Beverly Hills, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and London - sometimes all in a one-week span.
We have followed Khawaja’s e-commerce payment solution firm, Allied Wallet, for quite some time, but it made for a fascinating interview to be able to sit with the billionaire entrepreneur, feel the energy of his passion, and hear what he has in store for the future.
