Merit in Media
It all started back in 1999. Adil and Max had both started High School together at Downers Grove South High School in the northwest suburbs of Illinois. Max had already been programming for years, and Adil recently got hooked on networking, and completed his Microsoft Certification at age 14. By 2001, Adil and Max take AP Computer Science together, and become friends. Max tops the class; Adil has the second highest grade.
By 2002, Adil starts his first company, a small web development firm called SteeZo Media. Max creates a sweet custom logo in Blender; and it becomes the official SteeZo logo.
Adil and Max stay connected, but follow different paths: Max focuses on going deeper into Computer Science. Adil goes deeper into Entrepreneurship and Product Management. Years later, they decide to come together in building FoxCommerce, an enterprise eCommerce platform built in Scala, Go, and C++. When FoxCommerce does not have the commercial success that they hoped; the business is sold to Every., and Max and Adil create Merit.
