Key stakeholders from the IT community who were present at the P@SHA awards and the conference highlighted the need for policies that facilitate the growth of the ICT sector and do not hamper its development.
Emphasis on the grooming of talent to enable companies to scale and the need to explore a changing export landscape were also part of the discourse.
Meanwhile, P@SHA, with its global partners, is in the process of launching the largest technology incubator in Karachi.
The Nest i/O — the new technology incubator — will be a welcome addition to the vibrant city and will be open for business in the first week of December, 2014, according to a press release issued here on Saturday.
Made possible due to the generous support provided by P@SHA’s global partners Google for Entrepreneurs and Samsung and through a federal assistance grant from the US State Department, the P@SHA technology incubator will serve 50 plus technology teams and provide co-working space to an additional 700 technology entrepreneurs during its first year of launch.
