Virtual University in collaboration with Small and Medium Enterprises Development Authority (SMEDA) successfully completed its first and second round of organizing entrepreneurial and innovation seminars in 7 different cities of Pakistan with the theme ‘Entrepreneurship as Viable Career Option’.
Cities included Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Bahawalpur, Jalalpur Peer Wala, Nankana, Sheikhupura and Sahiwal.
The seminars aimed to connect students, innovators, and tech pioneers with the entrepreneurial community of Pakistan.
Entrepreneurs, investors, influencers, professionals and students from all over Pakistan attended the seminars. The speaker line-up included global voices who served not only in Pakistan but also in United Kingdom, Malaysia and on other international forums. All the speakers agreed that younger entrepreneurs are the most successful. They said that you can have your own view of the world, and entrepreneurship is the best platform where you pursue that view and see the fruition of your vision. Self-employment allows you to do your own thing and pursue those areas that you feel passionate about.
Virtual University and SMEDA will have more collaboration in future to extend the concept for Entrepreneurship to other cities of Pakistan.
