P@SHA LaunchPad Lahore – exhiliration, learning & talent unlimited!
There were many who told us that no-one would be interested in such an event, that there were too many activities going on as it is, that we shouldn’t bother, that it would all be a waste of effort. I am happy to say that they were wrong.
The Dome room at the Royal Palm Country Club & Resort was full of energy, full of mostly young people who were there either to present or to watch and listen to the ideas being presented. Granted some of the presentations could have been more focused but the fact that people were thinking and creating and looking at opportunities that were out there, was in itself good to see.
In my book they were all stars – the nominees, the winners, the judges, the guys who tweeted the whole event live and all the participants and we must not forget the volunteers and the sponsors who made it all possible. Thanks everyone. It was a pleasure being in Lahore, it was amazing meeting many of you and talking about things affecting you, your businesses and the country.
The judges were absolutely amazing – their tough questions, their blunt comments, their suggestions and advice were a learning in themselves. A number of young people came to me afterward and said that this was more than they had learnt in 4 years of university. This was real life learning. So true.
Details, photos and videos will be uploaded in the coming days. This is a process that we have begun to generate ideas, to motivate entrepreneurship and to offer mentoring and advice that is so badly needed to steer some very good ideas into workable propositions.
Today we have the P@SHA LaunchPad in Karachi at the Marriott Hotel. See you there!
