It is an evident claim to make that Pakistanis are getting all what it takes to reach the high ended positions in IT and technology world. With recent advancements in this decade, even the minnows of the society are technology addicted. Be it mobile phones or internet, everyone craves for technology. The ones not up to date are made fun of or experience a massive psychological inferiority complex.
The present times in Pakistan have diverted in favor of the Computer Sciences graduates. With universities establishing their own incubators. The IT based students tend to work immediately on workability models of their innovative startups after graduation. Where once upon a time, business graduates used to be on top immediately after graduation, today the stardom is enjoyed by IT students. How favorable this has turned out to be is observed on daily blogs and updates. Featured apps and just a statement of a recent CS graduate who learnt programming and android development when they boast off by saying “I am working on X-Y-Z” app for phones, gives normal public an impression of “OMG! What a Smart person!” type comments. Generally observing, the trends are not shifting to this category being called geeky or: “book-wormish!!!”, rather smart and creative are the words generally associated with their personification.
Talking about the hard efforts and coding mindset of this young pool of tech savvy generation, there seems to be a need for a platform for them. Global establishment of such platforms where these talented young people can not only learn to produce their dream apps but begin startups ranging from social, non-tech to extremely tech based ideas. Learning only the software handling or application development is just the minor part. Since we already mentioned “SMARTNESS”, it’s even cooler to be good at marketing and business development. Overall, the requirement today is to come up with a box full of chocolates with all the flavors.
This thought and smartness has generated a unique setup of incubation in Pakistan. Students are getting equipped fully with lots of incubators working in different cities and university levels. The ideal motivation for startups is the final pitch and their investor contacts. Of course the incubation scene of Pakistan is becoming bigger gradually. On this scene, the initiative by NETSOL for the first Private incubator of Pakistan named as “NSPIRE” gets the attention. Netsol’s success story was already well defined amongst IT grads when they said “That I will Join NETSOL Technologies In future” but NSPIRE has transformed that from job opportunities to another platform which is incubation. This has gotten thoughts bubbling with the ongoing suspense of NSPIRE for a couple of months. And finally the NSPIRE launch, marked on 7th September 2015, will establish a wave of startup aroma among the masses.
Surely the tagline is giving massive perceptions from its wording “BE NSPIRED” even at global scale that how this incubator and its criteria would be different. The inside news is that NETSOL has specially hired excellent creative team for NSPIRE and planned a variety of changes to this incubator program.
Surely, we’d get our hands on the upcoming events and plans, and keep writing to get you updated. But for now, thinking smart is the only option. The major dimensions of this incubator will be based on personality of the team, their idea approach and of course not forgetting, DEFINETLY THEIR SMART WORKING STYLE. We hope to have those smart startups who really fit to be the best and are NSPIRED! Because this phenomenon is left for you to elaborate how to be NSPIRED!
