By: Zukhraf Gull

StartUp City is an initiative by JumpStart Pakistan where they have taken it upon themselves to turn every city of Pakistan into an independent StartUp City fully capable of contributing into making Pakistan an entrepreneurship friendly country, one city at a time. 

Biggest Entrepreneurial Conference

  1. Peshawar
  2. Islamabad
  3. Abbottabad
  4. Sialkot
  5. Sargodha
  6. Karachi
  7. Quetta
  8. Hyderabad
  9. Faisalabad
  10. Lahore

Peshawar and Islamabad have already been covered. Now it’s Abbottabad’s turn. Abbottabad has already made its mark in grabbing attention of people who are either entrepreneurs themselves or are interested in becoming one. The seed of entrepreneurship has already been planted in the city. Keeping this in vision, JumpStart Pakistan is coming to Abbottabad this July to help turn it into a full blown StartUp City! 

JumpStart Pakistan is bringing Shepherd’s Pie, their take on a Dragon’s Den like startup-investor match-up program, to Abbottabad. Innovative startup ideas will be given a chance to pitch and gather investments in front of shepherd/investors and also get a chance to represent Pakistan and their city of Abbottabad in seedstarssummit*, Switzerland.

Don’t miss this chance. Register now and become part of a revolution that will Inshallah result in our future generations living in an Entrepreneurial Pakistan!
