The Startup Insiders session in Islamabad has now been confirmed. We were trying to see if we can move the dates to accomodate inter-city travel but the sponsors and panel had already committed the existing dates.
Startup Insiders #3 is being sponsored by LMK Resources and will be held on their premises in ETC next to the Marriot Islamabad.
It will be held on Thursday, January 31, from 6-9pm. Yes, this is one day before Startup Insiders 2 in Lahore – I suppose we’re numbering them in the order that they’re confirmed.
The Islamabad event also has an excellent set of panelists / mentors, and will definitely bring a very different set of insight than the Lahore panelists. So if you can, I’d recommend making it out to both events.
The entrepreneurs who will be coming to Startup Insiders #3 with their insight include:
- Ovais Ashraf, CEO, Trivor Software / Trango
- Faisal Chohan, CEO Cogilent Systems / Brightspyre ; possibly also Atif Mumtaz
- Faizan Buzdar – CEO, Scrybe Corp.
- Osama Hashmi, CEO, CDF Software – Me
- Zahid Mirza, Netsol Technologies
- Saeed Qadri, CEO, Voxel Communications
- Faisal Qureshi, CEO, Kolachi Advanced Technologies
- Jehan Ara, President, PASHA
(More are being lined up)
Also rumored to be attending are high-level execs from Telecom MNCs. As always, this event is a free for all session, but only innovative, open-minded entrepreneurs will find it engaging. Coffee and good conversations will flow freely.
I’m very interested in seeing how many people come to the Islamabad one, after 75-90 in the first in Karachi and an expected 100+ in Lahore.
I do know that Isb hosts a lot of product-focused companies and startups, some of the working in super-stealth mode with some great ideas. We also know that world class products such as Scrybe, Orgoo, Ooober, Ultimus, iKonami, (CDF Snip hoping to be world-class) and others are being created out of this region.
So really, I would be very interested in seeing the turnout in Islamabad.
Just as a reminder though,
- Startup Insiders 3 will be held in Islamabad on January 31
- Startup Insiders 2 will be held the next day in Lahore on Feb 1.
See you all there!
