To help the ever growing entrepreneurship culture in Pakistan, an initiative has been taken by Mr. Hamza Matin (CEO of EDP Services (Pvt.) Ltd) to launch the All Pakistan Entrepreneurs Exchange. This effort will help a lot of current and emerging entrepreneurs in this country. Under the umbrella of APEX, initiatives were also taken for the launch of Young Entrepreneurs Syndicate (YES) and Social Entrepreneurs Academy (SEA) which would provide platform to young entrepreneurs, students and academic institutions to interact for the development & training for setting up their businesses. We live in a country full of problems, so this means that there are a lot more opportunities here as compared to any other place. So, we need to identify problems, build a solution and get supported by organizations like APEX. According to their website
The All Pakistan Entrepreneurs’ Exchange is a volunteer-driven non-profit organization whose mandate is to support young people in business. Aimed at business owners, APEX provides its members an opportunity to learn from one another’s experiences and take advantage of peer support and mentorship as they grow their businesses.
