Venue: Karachi Institute of Technology & Entrepreneurship (KITE)
Bringing Silicon Valley to Karachi – Silicon Valley is a mindset, not a place.
Silicon Valley is revered the world over for the technology companies it creates. Over the years, we've learned that the Silicon Valley mindset can be replicated in other entrepreneurial ecosystems and we can benefit greatly from the growth of technology companies locally. Karachi has a fast growing startup ecosystem, and entrepreneurs here are lucky to have so many resources available to help them in their journey. However, many people don't know about all of the resources available, the differences between them, or what resources are right for them. At this event, we will bring the collaborative knowledge sharing of Silicon Valley to Karachi and give a quick overview of what it takes to startup in Karachi.
