The paradigm shift from individuals waiting for a substantial investment to starting up small-scale on their own has led to an exponential rise in the number of start-ups popping up all over the world. Startups, which were once seldom considered competition for big shots, have now started to boom into billion dollar companies like Uber and Snapchat. The startup trend has made its way successfully into Pakistan during the past few years and has already produced substantial and practical startups like Sabzi.pk. There has also been a rise in the amount of women owning startups such as BeautyHooked. This time around we are celebrating gender diversity and the roles of women in Entrepreneurship. It's time we appreciate the successful women in the entrepreneurial world and for that, this is a special shout out for all the talented women out there!
Do you want to be a part of this revolution which benefits you as well as those around you? Do you have the million dollar idea? If yes, then here is your chance. The SWLHR from February 24-26, 2016 is your chance to present your idea to a group of judges and mentors who will not only be judging the practicality and feasibility of your ideas based on their years of experience in the respective fields, but will also be providing you with advice you would want to hold on to for the rest of your careers. In this continuous 54 hour long event, young male and female entrepreneurs from all over Pakistan will meet individuals carrying all sorts of expertise and ideas which often results in partnerships that were inconceivable at first but later go on to prove substantially successful.
Register yourself and start the brainstorming, for this weekend is destined to be unlike any other!
Deadline: February 14, 2017
