Meet the team

Junayd Mahmood 
Junayd founded biotikur after watching family members struggle with digestive illnesses and accompanying mental health issues for years. After working in the financial sector, Junayd decided to pivot to a purpose-driven career in health and wellness.

Junayd was previously Head of Marketing and a member of the launch team at solarisBank, helping them attract investment from Visa and BBVA and become one Europe's most successful fintechs. Junayd received his MBA (hons.) from ESMT Berlin and a BA in Political Science from Grinnell College (USA). 

Junayd is also the unusual combination of Vipassana meditator and football fan. His favorite club, Arsenal FC, tests his equanimity a little too often!
