CEO & Co-Founder
Azrah Manji-Savin is the CEO & Co-Founder of the kitchen marketplace app Syzl, which enables gig economy food entrepreneurs and chefs to access safe and flexible kitchen space. As a first-generation immigrant, Azrah believes in food as a tie to one’s origin and a way to share culture with the world.
Before starting Syzl, Azrah was employee #1 for WeWork’s Alberta territory and previously launched WeWork Toronto’s first all-enterprise offerings. Previous positions also include VP of Innovation at Durum Capital, Sales at LinkedIn and Artist Services at Warner Music Group (WMG).

Syzl enables the gig economy chef and food entrepreneur to book certified kitchen space on a short-term or flexible basis, and lets kitchen owners make additional income on their own terms. Syzl manages the stress of verification, insurance sourcing, equipment sourcing, and payments so entrepreneurs can focus on what they do best - making incredible food.
