As we continued to listen to the pitches and watched these young people in action, it was apparent that there was no end to the ideas and the products that were emanating from startups within Pakistan. We only had a collection of some of these present at the Sheraton that morning. There were many more.

Having already produced several apps for the iPhone, Khurram Samad, CEO of GeniTeam, presented a role playing game that his company had launched for Google Android a month earlier. The application allows users to unleash their desire to become mafia dons by performing jobs, purchasing weapons and fighting with other gangsters. The application has a scalable backend to serve 1 million requests/day. The backend server is deployed over Amazon cloud computing.

With 2000 reviews, and average rating of 4.5 /5: the game is gaining huge traction in the Android market.

khurram scratching his headFarzal Dojki, advisor to Txtanium presented the concept of the proprietary communication platform that they have built which provides enterprises the power of traditional text messages through a multi platform enterprise system (desktop,web, mobile). Using their own proprietory hardware and adhering to international security standards Farzal said they are far superior in terms of speed, security, scalability and ease of use as compared to their competitors.

farzalUmair Khan Jadoon who blogs under the name ProgrammerFish.com, got quite a response when he asked those present how many had blogs, thought they wrote well but felt they didn’t have enough traffic coming to their blogs and that they were not being recognized for the amazing content they were producing. A large number of people in the room raised their hands which was the opening that Umair was looking for. He said he could offer a solution code named Vimble which would solve their problem by linking similar content with each other. He explains how.
