Hi, my name is Ali Ghafour.

I am an entrepreneur, technologist and martial artist.

I am currently founder and CEO of 2020 Armor - a sports technology company that develops martial art scoring equipment and software. We basically bring the Street Fighter video game to real life. We have a big vision to make martial arts a spectator friendly, mass market sport. Customers include the largest martial art clubs in the world and investors include LeAD sports founded by the family members of Adidas. This is my second venture capital backed business, and we were featured on the Dragons Den TV Show.

My first venture capital backed business was Viafoura an enterprise SaaS company in which I was a founder and CTO. Viafoura allows the public to share their opinion on important matters on very large media brands such as the CBC. It is still running successfully today.

I was a four time Canadian national taekwondo team member and retired in 2007 after I did not make the 2008 Olympic team. I have a degree in Computer Science from the University of Toronto.
