The auspicious ceremony included high proﬁle keynote speeches, mentoring sessions from 25 seasoned entrepreneurs, panel discussions with gurus and the much awaited startup award ceremony at the end. More than a 100 startups from all corners of Pakistan were shortlisted and displayed their products and services in front of 5000+ visitors at the exhibition area (including corporates, business incubation centers, entrepreneurs, academia, families etc.)
The major goal of the Expo was to promote, stimulate and provide avenues for sustainability to existing and potential startups.
