According to Aly Fahd, Founder of Paklaunch, this is only the beginning of something big:
“We are thrilled to provide global VCs the chance to invest in Pakistani companies through our platform.” We have already effectively assisted in the investment of over USD 7 million and aim to continue to be catalysts in this ecosystem.” The conference is made possible thanks to the assistance of JS Bank Limited, the conference’s platinum sponsor.
At the conference, leading global VCs and experts will explore the secrets underlying the world’s rising interest in Pakistani companies. “As Pakistan’s top platform for connecting investors, entrepreneurs, and professionals, Paklaunch seeks not only to support Pakistani companies but also to assist global VCs in finding the appropriate startup to invest in,” Aly adds.
Even after COVID-19, Pakistan’s entrepreneurial environment has grown, fueled by rising mobile penetration and the world’s biggest, youngest populace seeking lifestyle enhancements. The country’s startup scene has already attracted the attention of the country’s biggest venture capitalists, including First Round Capital, Prosus, Kleiner Perkins, and Gobi Partners. Paklaunch is dedicated to improve the startup environment and advocate for it on a global scale.
