100 Technology Startups by 2022


Pakistan is the 2nd largest youth population in the world with almost 150 million young people that are mostly connected to the Internet. At the same time, we are going through a global transition from the industrial age to the knowledge age in which technology is playing a critical role. Out of the 49 emerging technologies, there are 7 technologies that are disrupting almost every sector. These 7 technologies are 3D Printing, Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Reality, Blockchain, Intelligent Vehicles, Internet of Things, and Smart Robots. Entrepreneurship and Innovation in emerging technologies has a worldwide potential of creating 50 trillion dollars of economic impact. Pakistan needs to take its fair share of this global market And we can do it by joining our forces.

We can do it if we combine the two biggest assets Pakistan has, youth and overseas Pakistanis. The youth of Pakistan has the energy and dreams and overseas Pakistanis have global exposure and professional experience.


Develop a strong network of overseas Pakistanis from professional backgrounds to launch Pakistani technology startups, serving the country while making money in the process.
