Alumni Newsmaker: Saq Nadeem '05

Pet peeve leads to business innovation for '05 alumnus

When Saq Nadeem '05 was a consultant balancing his career with the needs of his pets Gucci, Vera and Versace, no ordinary pet-sitting service would do.

The frequent traveler found most options inferior, with poor location, hours and quality. As a Kellogg student, Nadeem turned frustration into an innovative business catering to time-starved professionals and their animal pals. Backed by Kellogg faculty, Paradise for Paws recently opened near Chicago's O'Hare Airport.

Paradise for Paws is a premium pet resort touting bone-shaped pools and private suites for dogs and bungalows with private aquarium views for cats. The resort is open 24 hours to cater to jet-setting businesspeople.

Nadeem advises entrepreneurs to follow their passions and tap their networks. "The benefit that comes with a Kellogg MBA is the network and the resources available not only through your academic career, but beyond graduation," he said.

Backers plan to launch a second P4P near Chicago's Midway Airport in 2008, with more locations opening across the country later.
