Startup Insiders Session # 6 in Lahore at LUMS on February 24

February 19, 2008 at 10:41 pm 13 comments

si logoYes … following on from the announcement regarding the SI session in Islamabad, we discussed it internally today and decided that it would be interesting to take the team to Lahore the very next day. On a Sunday, you ask? Why not? It is the perfect day for everyone – a holiday from the normal stresses of work. No other distractions. Totally relaxed day for an animated discourse.

The following panelists – who are well known for their passion, their success, as well as their idiosyncracies – have already agreed to be there:

Faisal Qureshi, CEO, Kolachi Advanced Technolgies
Zia Imran, CEO, VahZay Pvt Limited
Jawwad Farid, CEO, Alchemy Technologies
Salim Ghauri, President & CEO, Netsol Technologies
Osama Hashmi, CEO, CDF Software
Jehan Ara, President, P@SHA
Fahd Bangash, CEO, Amaana
Zafar Khan, CEO, Sofizar
Dr. Umar Saif, Founder ChOpaal, & Associate Professor, LUMS

And if this is not exciting enough (although I would challenge anyone to tell me this is NOT an absolutely fantastic list of panelists) …. more distinguished panelists will confirm their attendance tomorrow and I will add them to the list as their confirmations are received.

    hmm…this is a great list, Jawaad’s valuable quote that ‘victory is shared by all but defeat is only yours’ hit me big time 🙂

    But i was wondering y certain other reputed copmany representatives are not showing up, like those from TPS,Techlogix, MobileComplete etc.
    Im sure u hav invted them ofcourse, but just curious…

    Hey Atif, do you mean these guys are not reputable? 😉 Salim Ghauri has been added to the list. Kewan from Techlogix appears to be out of town, TPS is Karahi based. Trying to get hold of some others but this is a good lineup anyway.

    Will there be any one representing LUMS?

  • 4. Jehan  |  February 21, 2008 at 3:56 pm

    Yes there will be a team from LUMS. Dr. Umar Saif will certainly be there.

    Was getting a little jealous of all the activity in Karachi, but it’s great to hear about you coming to Lahore… We’ll be looking forward to seeing everyone at LUMS

  • 7. Jawwad  |  February 23, 2008 at 5:38 am

    Nope, just show up

  • 8. Jehan  |  February 23, 2008 at 8:30 am

    I second Talha’s suggestion to invite Dr.Umar for the next SI Session at Karachi

  • 12. Jehan  |  February 25, 2008 at 7:17 pm

    I shall certainly ask him if he is willing to fly down since he is so much in demand 🙂
