P@SHA, TiE Lahore and Sofizar Constellation are joining hands with LUMS to bring to all entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs an Interactive Talk with Imran Sayeed, a very distinguised entrepreneur and technologist from the US.

Imran Sayeed, a serial entrepreneur, a consultant, an engineer, a mentor, a rainmaker, and a great supporter of many initiatives in Pakistan including the OPEN-MITEF initiative is going to be in Lahore on July 29.

Imran is Senior Vice President, Global Architecture, Application Development and Management Practice and leads all commercial sector industry practices for Keane, a global BPO and IT Services company with ~14,000 professionals worldwide. Industry practices include Financial Services, Insurance, Healthcare, Pharmaceutial, Manufacturing, Retail, Hospitality & Travel and Energy, and together comprise most of the key business lines and customers for Keane.

Imran Sayeed came to Keane through its acquisition of netNumina, a boutique technology strategy and consulting form that he founded and grew from a 15 person startup to one of Computerwold’s Top 100 emerging companies. netNumina won more than 30 of the leading financial services & pharmaceutical institutions in the world as clients, raised more than $25MM from venture capitalists and strategic investors and received more than 20 industry awards for its work.

Imran has over fifteen years of experience in software and services. Previously, as a founder of Open Environment, Sayeed helped pioneer multi-tier client server technology, and grew the company from a 10-person startup to an IPO and leadership in the middleware market.

He has written and spoken extensively in leading industry conferences and trade journals over the last 13 years on entrepreneurship, e-business, financial services, insurance and technology. Sayeed serves on the Advisory Board of several software and private equity companies.

Imran Sayeed also holds a patent on technology for providing secure financials transactions over the Internet that he jointly developed with Citigroup. He is currently a visiting faculty member at MIT’s Sloan School of Management where he teaches in the MBA program on technology business strategy.

He attended Brown University where he majored in Engineering, and Harvard University, where he did post-graduate work in business, marketing and product development.

The interactive talk is being held at the NIB Auditorium at LUMS from 5:30 – 7:30 pm on July 29, 2010. It is a free event but you must register so we know how many to cater for.

Oh btw pizza will be served in the Courtyard after the event. 🙂

    Asad, Imran was flying out at 9. We had to do some serious surgery to have it take place at 5:30. Original plan was 2:30. We have to get, what we can…Imran is on a whirlwind tour, and the couple hours on a weeknight is all we get!

  • 18. Jehan  |  July 28, 2010 at 8:44 am

    @Asad, Zafar is right. We are lucky Imran was able to take the time to do this at all. Ask your boss to let you leave office an hour early so that you can come and listen to this awesome talk. You will benefit and so will the organisation that you are working for.

  • 19. Farzal  |  July 28, 2010 at 12:44 pm

    Asad – bring your boss 🙂 He will leave a wiser person

  • 20. Jehan  |  July 28, 2010 at 12:48 pm

    Sometimes @Farzal you are a real genius. Great suggestion!
