As a part of their course deliverable, team Shajar-e-Umeed has yet again set the benchmark very high by hosting a seasoned entrepreneur, venture capitalist, and leading expert, Mr. Monis Rahman. Being a CEO of Pakistan’s top employment website Rozee.pk and a party to other great ventures such as FINGA and Easy Ticketing, he enlightened the young entrepreneurs of FAST-NU Lahore with latest economic trends in Pakistan that are creating opportunities for young enthusiasts to capitalize on. He further discussed the tools one may use to acquire venture capital in and outside Pakistan, topping it up with the latest facts and progress. Students were able to interact with him one on one, discussing their startups and as well as potential areas where one can look for opportunities. Team Shajar-e-Umeed is immensely thankful to Mr. Shahid Malik, as anything that we do and achieve are because of his motivation and guidance at every step. He fuels us with such a drive, that empowers us to think and do big. We would also like to extend our gratitude to Dr. Hamid Hassan, Director FAST-NU Lahore for being a part of this talk and to be always supportive and appreciative of such activities that create value for students.
