Being a Tech Geek is the new orange in town now and every tech geek’s dream destination is no other but the “Silicon Valley”. However not everyone is lucky enough to pursue the dream but that doesn’t mean dreams die, major country’s governments are realizing the importance of technology and tech geeks in order to prosper in 21st century.
There’s a dire requirement of not only one but more than one Silicon Valley specifically in APAC region; a hub of emerging markets booming with talent and surprises. Our nearest one is Singapore, China and very soon India, but being late adapter Pakistan is amidst thought of whether to start out this voyage or not.
TECH Pakistan Pvt Ltd a fastest growing technology network of Pakistan, founded in 2016 with a vision to connect the dots of Pakistan’s industry and create a fabric of strong IT infrastructure. The man behind this vision is an entrepreneur named Kanwal Masroor who rise from middle of nowhere and made his own mark in the whole industry with his efforts & vision. He wanted to build his nation by prospering fiercely into the direction of world were technology is the only way ahead, unleashing great opportunities, bridging the gaps of Academia & Industry, Jobs Creation, Entrepreneurship & most importantly digital & financial inclusion on the level of masses.
One of his prominent initiatives in order to bring digital inclusion to the marginalized population of the country is “Girl Digital Leader”. The initiative aims to bridge the digital gender divide by providing fully funded training to mid-career young women from under privilege background so that they can earn from home using mobile phones. More than 550 girls been trained in just the first year of its inception.
He thinks that the only way Pakistan mend the gap of 100 years back tracked is by excelling in technology, bringing more investment trust and becoming a hub for global technology game players like Google, Amazon, Facebook, Netflix, PayPal & other relevant organizations that enables the paradigm shift. In plans of building a Silicon Valley in Karachi, Pakistan; named Technology HUB, he met every possible person in Pakistan’s industry and try real hard to bring the industrial sector on one board along with Government. Despite of encouragement & praises the progress slow & wearier.
So just one brilliant day, he decided to build a virtual Silicon Valley by developing a mobile application called Disrupt. And that one idea just got real & launched in Jan 2019. To his surprise, people actually go crazy for the mobile application and adores it. Now he’s determined to connect everyone with Disrupt, every possible being who is inclined to technology industry, no matter if he’s student, IT Professional, startup, scholar, faculty, entrepreneur or a corporate guru. The vision is to serve everyone and fulfill the requirements of every sector and connect people.
The best part is people from abroad can also become a part of Disrupt to explore the Pakistan market, which can increase the opportunities dramatically.
