VentureDive’s application, Athan, made global waves after it got featured as one of the fastest growing applications in the Asia Pacific region at the Google App Summit’18, held in Singapore. Athan was the only ‘made in Pakistan’ app to feature at the event. Representing Athan at the summit, VentureDive’s Managing Director Saad Fazil and Senior Product Manager Ali Raza made a memorable footprint for the country by being the only Pakistanis at the invite-only event.
As part of the speakers’ panel, Saad Fazil delved into the story of Athan and the meticulous efforts that went into its launch, highlighting its vision and objectives. Speaking of his participation at the Google App Summit, Saad expressed a sense of achievement on behalf of the team behind Athan for reaching yet another milestone.
Commenting on the significant occasion, Saad Fazil, MD and Co-founder said, “As is the case with all products and services associated with VentureDive, our aim is to reach larger communities with a tech-based solution for their daily routines in order to make life easier for them. It is heartening for us to see that we are achieving that with Athan.”
“While the impact of an app like Athan cannot be felt in full force in the Muslim-majority countries where calls for prayers are made five times a day and the general culture of the place makes it easier to adjust routines during times such as Ramadan, it is the non-Muslim majority countries where the inclusive aspect of the app is felt in full force. Many of our users living in the West find Athan useful as it makes it easier for them to follow their religion.”
