There are quite a few Muslims in the latest Forbes magazineâ€™s â€˜30 under 30â€™ list. Among them is Zain Jaffer who is listed in the Games and Apps category. He created Vungle a mobile video ad company launched in June, and already reaching 50M+ people per month, and working with Amazon, Hotels.com and Priceline.
The start-up company has created a platform that allows the developers of apps to run video advertising on mobile devices.
Jaffer compares these videos to movie trailers, except theyâ€™re shown on mobile devices and are typically 15 seconds long. The technology allows apps to offer HD-quality videos, giving the owners of iPhones and other mobile devices the opportunity to see how an app works before deciding whether to download it.
