Alston Ghafourifar

With the curiosity of a social scientist and the precision of an engineer, Alston loves pushing the status quo to solve the seemingly unsolvable. As Entefy’s visionary and chief problem-solver, Alston leads and builds teams, products, partnerships, and culture. Since founding Entefy, he has raised $14.8 million in venture funding, created several key strategic partnerships, managed a global product team, and led the creation of a suite of strategic intellectual property patents in the areas of security, privacy, and communications including: zero-knowledge privacy with server-side encrypted search, multi-dimensional adaptive content permissioning, and multi-format communication composition, integration, and threading, to name a few. Alston graduated from UC Santa Cruz at age 17 with a Bachelor’s degree in Politics.
