About this session

Startup Grind in collaboration with Pakistan Tech Summit is hosting the veterans of Pakistan's tech ecosystem.

Join us for an insightful discussion with Jehan Ara (President - P@SHA), Yusuf Hussain (Senior Partner - JumpCurve / Former CEO Ignite), Nabeel Qadeer (Host - Idea Croron Ka) Faisal Sherjan (Angel Investor) to have an enlightening session on the evolution of Pakistan's startup ecosystem during COVID, hosted by Roshanay Asif Sheikh, Director - Startup Grind Sialkot.

These ecosystem players have played a major role in establishing the startup culture in Pakistan. We see a lot of new ideas being put into intangible services, a lot of great minds being directed to become CEOs of their companies, a lot of leaders leading teams - all this has been done by huge support, direction, guidance and solutions provided by these incubation centers.

In our panel discussion with these renowned guests, we are going to talk about why there is a need of the incubation centers, how they've helped the startups so far, what's going to be their strategy in the post corona world and how they think the startup industry is going to change in the coming times.

Take all the knowledge you can! Try to understand the startup world in this one hour's insightful session with us!
