TiECon 2010 - Unleashing Change - Rect

TiECon 2010 Pakistan is an annual flagship event of TiE and it is the first time in history, it is being organized in collaboration with all three TiE Pakistan chapters. As the theme explains, this years event focuses on unleashing the change about Pakistan and its tremendous potential in growth.

At a time when a significant gap exists between the vast opportunities that Pakistan has to offer fearless entrepreneurs and the perception of the country abroad, TiECon 2010 Pakistan brings together global thought leaders on home soil. Together, through the power of ideas, the conference aims to catalyze entrepreneurial minds to unleash change and create opportunity.

The aim is to expose the potential in Pakistani human resource and explore the opportunities for the entrepreneurs of the country. This is how Monis Rahman, CEO of Naseeb Networks was able to win trust of the venture capitalists to get the funds approved for its flagship product even when the investors had reservations regarding the less known country of the world… Pakistan. Read the story of and how other successful entrepreneurs are doing good for not only themselves but for their country, at Meet Pakistan’s Real Revolutionaries.

The conference brings together a mix of leading local and international entrepreneurs, investors and business leaders. Collectively they will inspire, motivate and create inertia for change in their respective areas of expertise. This year’s TiECon will be organized into a diverse yet equally critical group of sessions including riveting success stories of entrepreneurs, government as a facilitator of entrepreneurship, the societal need and impact of social entrepreneurship, media’s role as a change agent and creating entrepreneurs through high quality and ubiquitous access to education.

Hosted in Lahore, TiECon 2010 Pakistan will provide delegates with a rich cultural exposure to what is often called South Asia’s cultural capital. The conference agenda incorporates carefully designed segments to sample Lahore’s historical magic, captivating music and infamous cuisine.

Sanjh – an Art exhibition in support of the flood relief efforts

The Sanjh set (101 cards), now part of my collection, proudly sits on my own desk and keeps reminding me of the University of Gujrat but also tells a story of how artists of Pakistan came forward to share the miseries of fellow countrymen in real need by offering their art work that moved people to buy and contributing to the relief efforts. The inspiring act of Sanjh will go a long way and will be remembered in times to come.

Sanjh team approached Pakistani artists and asked them to contribute their work to help flood 2010 victims. The team then arranged an exhibition that was opened by Ms. Salima Hashmi on September 4, 2010, at Alhamra Art Gallery, Lahore, and continued to run until September 10, 2010. Sanjh was well attended by visitors from all walks of life, many of whom were particularly excited about buying quality artworks at extremely affordable prices.

Thanks to the contributing artists – the real donors and champions of this entire fund raising effort as they take home nothing except for their own goodwill in return of beautiful creations that they have selflessly donated for the cause along with the time, money and effort to execute them. On behalf of all flood victims, if I may, more thanks to Zahraa Assad, Saifullah and Zahra Mirza of RetroArts, Foaad Nizam of Danka, and Visual Artists, Imran, Sajjad and Usman for what they did [Also here and here].
