Data Tech Entrepreneur Sabira Arefin Expands Into ID Resolution

Entrepreneur and business management professional, Sabira Arefin, is pioneering ID resolution technology. Her company recently developed a global identity solutions product featuring data technology that has powered various large data companies, including Telcos. Arefin’s company provides data profiles and intel that are applied to two-thirds of the country’s universal emergency number system.

“Telcos powered two-thirds of America’s 911 system using our data profiles and intel when a call came in, who is the caller, and where is the call coming from,” says Arefin.

Identity resolution is the science of connecting the growing volume of consumer identifiers to one individual as he or she interacts across channels and devices. Identity resolution platforms are created to integrate consumer identifiers across those channels and devices in a way that is accurate, scalable, and privacy compliant. This is how a persistent and addressable individual profile is established.

In 2013, Arefin co-founded LocalBlox™, a technology company that builds highly-scalable business and neighborhood platforms, aggregating 23M+ local business profiles, 2M-3M events, and crime and news content across 112K neighborhoods. The company provides tools to leverage neighborhood and business data in a three-dimensional aspect by integrating place, time, and social signals. The ability to hyper-locally connect people with businesses helps drive intelligence for relationship management, sales and marketing wins, fraud prevention, and identity protection. The platform powers first responder services and financial institutions with identity resolution for location fraud prevention as well as safe data management.

Arefin, who has over 10 years of experience providing customer-centric data technology services, has been on a mission to identify opportunities and translate a concept into a sustainable product that improves the efficiencies of organizational operations through customer-centric data tech services.

“I take pride in my work and believe that all of my previous positions combined have provided a foundation of skills that position me to be a contributing member of society,” says Arefin. “Throughout my career experiences, I have become adept at evaluating processes and implementing strategies to achieve organizational goals while overseeing operations throughout all phases. Additionally, I possess both the interpersonal and analytical skills necessary to build productive relationships that I can utilize towards helping improve their chances for better quality.”

Arefin, who has an MBA from Duke University and a Bachelor of Science from Truman State University, has always had a deep fascination with learning the data behind how hospital operations contribute to growth in everyday life and society. She will pursue the Executive Leadership Program at Harvard Medical School this Spring.

Her accomplishments include conceptualizing and maintaining a project plan and project budget for over 10 software applications, including Peoplesoft, Hyperion, Sales Logix CRM software, and other third-party applications. She has been acknowledged as a competitive innovator in the market by contributing earnings of $5M in revenue.

Arefin reveals that she is currently exploring business opportunities internationally and will be expanding into Asia Pacific, Australia, New Zealand, South America, and Europe in the next six months to two years.
