The Movenpick Hotel in Karachi played host to this year’s 021Disrup conference, “A celebration of technology and entrepreneurship”. DPL’s own Syed Ahmed was featured in the lineup of speakers (‘disruptors’) alongside a host of inspiring individuals from Pakistan and abroad representing a range of disciplines, from tech to design, finance and marketing, film and media. Syed participated in the first day’s panel discussing the challenges and strategies for putting together a winning startup team.
2018 marks the second year of the 021Disrupt movement, which aims to push the boundaries of innovation and bring together the country’s best and brightest with some of the world’s leaders in technology and entrepreneurship. 021Disrupt also provides the opportunity for startups to meet with investors, both local and international, aiming to shine light on the up and coming superstars in the invite-only roundtable at the end of the event.
As DPL has weathered the ins and outs of going from startup to established industry influencer, it was a great opportunity to extend a hand and share some of our hard-earned experience in the field.
