Sixteen-year-old Raffay Ansari is a self-taught programmer. He’s been an iOS developer for over three years and has now graduated into full-stack, meaning he’s comfortable working with a number of different languages as well as both back-end and front-end technologies. The teenage prodigy from Pakistan has earned several thousand dollars freelancing online, coded games that have attracted about 8 million cumulative downloads, and is now on the brink of launching his own startup.

The disease is more of a gift to me. As I can’t sleep much at night, I utilize the time learning new things instead. People treat me differently and are always willing to help. It’s a huge advantage, he beams

Raffay has Ataxia, which means he has difficulty walking, speaking clearly, writing, reading, and other activities that require fine motor control. Raffay tells Tech in Asia that his muscles continue to weaken, even after his diagnosis over 2 years ago.

Busy Day
For Raffay, a typical day begins at 7 am, when he wakes up and gets ready to go to school. At 3 pm, when school ends, he goes to the office of Lahore-based startup incubator Plan9 and busies himself with his entrepreneurial work.
He’s stationed there till 8 pm. Afterwards, he goes back home, eats dinner, and continues his tasks till the wee hours of the morning. His freelancing income has paid for an array of gadgets, as well as the constant physiotherapy he must undertake to treat his disease.

Raffay’s first interaction with Plan9 came in 2013, when he applied for incubation. He wasn’t accepted due to his age, but was offered an internship instead. Plan9 director Nabeel Qadeer noticed his precocious talents and started to mentor him personally. Soon, Raffay was acting as a technical consultant for the startups housed in the incubator, and eventually went on to work with 11 different ventures. He participated in and won the Ideas Xtreme Competition for two consecutive years, and  also worked for an established software house in Lahore.

Raffay is now on the brink of launching his own startup, Odyssy, which he describes as a datadriven content management system (CMS) targeted at bloggers and publishers who aren’t very technologically savvy and who don’t want to spend time coding in HTML. “It’s more amazing than WordPress,” he smiles. He reveals Odyssy is on the brink of closing its seed funding round – US$20,000 from an angel investor based out of Islamabad.

Despite only recently clearing his GCE’s, the teenager has fierce ambitions for the future. “After my A-levels, I want to attend college and do a dual degree majoring in mechatronics and business management. Then I’ll dive back into entrepreneurship.”
