An entrepreneur from childhood, Houston native Zahed Lateef stocked shelves in his father’s convenience store and delivered newspapers at age 8. By age 11, he had started his own lawn-mowing business with contracts at approximately 30 homes, where he provided his services for $15 an hour. His father also developed real estate, and Zahed Lateef followed along from a young age, joining him in meetings and handling accounting duties. He developed a love of architecture and later founded Homes of Excellence, LLC, to design and build his own house. At age 19, he began a business with a silent partner in Houma, Louisiana, buying repossessed and foreclosed tugboats from GE Capital.

Zahed Lateef revolutionized the fountain dispensing system after acquiring a company that marketed carbon-dioxide distribution equipment. He also invested in a grocery distributor and purchased and operated a pesticide-manufacturing firm.
