About this event

Startup Grind (in partnership with Google for Startups) proudly presents the first Startup Grind Pakistan Conference!

This is the first Startup Grind conference in Asia, bringing together over 1,500 founders and thought leaders, for conversations, collaborations and actions around the role of technology for the future of Pakistan. We are inviting globally successful Pakistani entrepreneurs, innovators and technologists to tell their story and how Pakistan as a country can emulate their achievement.

Startup Grind is the world’s largest independent startup community, actively educating, inspiring, and connecting entrepreneurs in 600 cities, across 125 countries. Startup Grind is powered by Google for Startups.

Why Pakistan?

Pakistan is the 6th largest country in the world with a population of 220 million, around 50% of the population speaks English making it the world's 3rd largest english speaking country. With over 70 million people having access to high speed internet, Pakistan has more internet users than the population of all Nordic countries combined.

According to Bloomberg, Pakistan is the world's fastest growing retail market in fact Uber's CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said "Pakistan is one of Uber's fastest growing markets" after Uber's $3.1 billion acquisition of Careem, a ride hailing unicorn founded by a Pakistani entrepreneur.

Careem is not the only one, Pakistan has produced the minds behind some of the world's leading tech companies including Afiniti ($1.6 billion AI startup), KeepTruckin ($1.25 billion startup), FireEye (world's leading cybersecurity company), Cavium (sold for $6 billion) and many others.
