SSE Public Lectures: Past events

Replicating Silicon Valley in the Indus Valley

Panelists:
Jehan Ara (NEST/IO)
Dr. Suleman Shahid (Faculty Advisor, Technology for People Initiative LUMS)
Imran Moinuddin (CEO Nexdegree)
Muneeb Maayr (CEO Bykea)
Time: 6:00pm – 7:30pm
Venue: Tariq Rafi Lecture Theater, Habib University

About the talk: In the Neo-Tech-Age, Silicon Valley derives its hub status by acting as a melting pot for the best talent, mentorship and funding for innovative ideas. Creating such a fertile and self-reinforcing eco-system for entrepreneurship is arguably a difficult task and replicating it in other parts of the world presents its own unique challenges.

Is it a natural phenomenon particular to that region?

Or is it the result of a culture that has persistently experimented with investments in cutting-edge technology?

Answering these questions can provide clues on contextualizing such a culture for the Pakistani startup landscape, which is already located in the heart of a past-times hub i.e. Indus Valley.

Panelists:
Jehan Ara (NEST/IO)
