‘Hello Tomorrow Pakistan’ Challenge was launched by LUMS Center for Entrepreneurship (LCE) on 1st June 2017 in collaboration with Hello Tomorrow Pakistan, Pakistan Innovation Foundation and French Embassy.
The Event held at LUMS was graced by great minds such as Prof. Dr. S. Sohail H. Naqvi, Vice Chancellor LUMS; Mr. Sanwal Muneer, Head Hello Tomorrow Paksitan; Mr. Andre De Bussy, Counsellor for Cooperation and Culture Affairs, French Embassy Islamabad; Mr. Zia Imran, Board Member, Pakistan Innovation Fund (PIF) and Mr. Faisal Sherjan, Director, LUMS Center for Entrepreneurship.
The local round would be held at LUMS and would feature all startups. The deadline for registrations is July 10th 2017, while the victor would take away a once in a lifetime chance to appear at Grandeur filled ‘Global Hello Tomorrow Summit’ held in October. The Global event would be graced by over 300 international tech Investors and would provide 3, of the top local winners, an opportunity to present their views and garner support.
Speaking to the participants, Dr. Naqvi was quoted saying,
“The idea is to create successes locally and help aspiring entrepreneurs present the ideas globally.”
Mr. Andre De Bussy noted in his agreement with the views and said,
Pakistan is chosen to be among the ten countries to participate in the Hello Tomorrow Challenge, as we see a lot of potential and viable ideas in the local communities”.
Mr Sanwal Munir too testified to the benefits, saying that the event would open new doors for entrepreneurs.
As far as LCE is concerned, it has been the leading incubator that has harnessed growth of startups for a while now. Its nurtures talented startups and has been a huge success. Such is the extent of success that it was reported as Pakistan’s No.1 experiential platform for the entrepreneurs. We salute the effort put in by LCE and hope that it cruises to further successes.
Hello tomorrow is a global organization, spread in 15 countries, aiming at bringing forth the startups. Pakistan is one of those 15 nations, with Hello Tomorrow Pakistan as its local hub.
The Plan appears to be a success, given that 3 startups from our country may earn foreign support. I hope I am proven correct. Let it all role along.
