At the moment the girls are at The Nest I/O in Karachi. There they will be incubated for four months.
According to the co-founder Shanza,
“Every minute at The Nest counts for us as we will never get the same opportunity to be able to work on the product without any interruption the way we have gotten at this incubation center. At home, there are always electricity shortages, internet problems and family members disrupting our workflow.”
The four months of incubation will help these young girls learn more and think with even larger perspectives. They will have easy access to technology, mentors and investors.
