Amazing number of nominations for P@SHA LaunchPad!

June 24, 2010 at 10:49 am 6 comments

All I can say is WOW! When we went into the exercise of putting out a Call for Nominations for this event, we thought it would be difficult to get 15 good entries per city – not because there is not enough innovation happening in the ICT sector in Pakistan but because people are very busy and the only vehicle we used to spread the word was the Internet – emails, blog posts, Facebook, Twitter.

Well, we received over a 100 nominations – and so many that are absolutely brilliant! A panel is going through them now and will notify by the end of the day those who have to present on Saturday and Sunday in Lahore and Karachi. Entries will be judged on the concept, the innovation, the impact, the delivery of the pitch and the commercial viability of the product or service. Judges have been lined up in both cities.

Whether you are shortlisted to present or not, you still win because we will be contacting you over the next few weeks and will help connect you with an online panel of mentors who can assist you in the areas that you have identified. Do come to the events in Karachi and Lahore and be part of the energy and the excitement.

Registration are still open – links are given below:

    I and a friend of mine registered to attend this brilliant session today. When I submitted the form, it said that I will be notified of confirmation through email by Thursday evening which has passed two days back. Is there a chance that I will be allowed to attend this session? I do not want to miss this event as this is the first entrepreneurship-related event that I will be attending.

    Thank you🙂
