Aziz Chowdhury is an active options trader, with previous work experience in the commodities market, as well as in manufacturing and large-scale distribution. Currently, he is an entrepreneur in the healthcare sector, with a focus on acquisition of medical and cosmetic practices. Drawing from his experience in these industries provides him with a unique perspective when evaluating nontraditional equities.

Aziz has been investing in the Pre-IPO realm for several years and is a big proponent of the industry. He has seen this space expand in recent years with the inception of many platforms that cater to the masses and he is concerned about new investors investing into companies without the proper guidance and due diligence needed for optimal success. Brown Street Ventures was specifically created to provide that gap of guidance and due diligence.
