Startup Insiders Series: A Story Of Determination And Success
It is always pleasant to write about a trend, revisit that topic a few months later and report progress. A few months ago I wrote about how views about entrepreneurship are changing in Pakistan. I mentioned some success stories. with the emphasis that the successes are neither incidental nor anomalies. The Startup insider series is a solid evidence of the positive momentum and shows the resilience and determination of a small group of dedicated leaders such as Jawwad, Jehan and Osama. See the list below and look up some of them on the web.
You can read all about it at Green & White, where Osama Hashmi has blogged about all the events, starting from Karachi to Islamabad to Lahore. These events, first of their kind, have drawn tremendous crowds and sparked the entrepreneurial spirit of many. Here’s the description of upcoming event, on Feb 24 in Lahore. Theme is: Who is my customer?
Startup Insiders is coming to Lahore again on the 24th of February. This time the event is supported by LUMS and will be held at the LUMS Campus itself.
