Osama Hashmi today officially handed me over this beacon of Green & White.
My affiliation with green and white is a bit old about 3 years to be precise, I started as a reader, then started commenting and finally Osama gave me the opportunity to write about different people issues a topic which was very close to my heart. This addiction to startup and entrepreneur ship took me on a path where me an Osama walked together for about 2 years before i being the weaker one came back to the safety of corporate job.
When Osama talked to me about handing over this responsibility I was apprehensive, it is a tough ask the standard he leaves behind would be hard to match, similarly the ability to talk his mind no matter what and criticize objectively is some thing i need to learn from him. For me his best post remains this one
He showed us all that there is entrepreneur ship happening in the closed doors in Pakistan, inspired a lot (including my self) to try their luck.
I alone canâ€™t take this site any where alone, would need active support from you all, I have a few things on my mind circling along the lines as to where we can help and connect the industry and academia and students, what we can do to help the budding entrepreneur how do we make sure they grow into profitable businesses.
You have any idea shoot it in comments emails I will surely respond.
As for Osama, Sir as Salman Munir has said you canâ€™t go away we would not let you, and this definitely should not be your last post. And will seek your guidance.
For me he will always remain a good friend and a mentor who showed me what all new media is about.
