Endeavor Pakistan launched in May 2022 and will work with founders and companies that have passed through the initial start-up phase and demonstrate the potential for rapid expansion and scale.
Endeavor Pakistan is anchored by a strong founding Board of Directors, including Ali Mukhtar, Founder and GP, Fatima-Gobi Ventures; Amir Paracha, Chairman, and CEO, Unilever Pakistan; Mudassir Sheikha, Co-Founder, and CEO, Careem (Endeavor Entrepreneur); Osman Rashid, Chairman & CEO: Convo, SOAR Schools & Khoj Resorts; and Tania Aidrus, Co-founder, Rayn Group. The operation of the Endeavor Pakistan office will be self-funded by its Board of Directors, with a long-term funding plan.
“I am thrilled to see the launch of Endeavor Pakistan as our country’s startup scene continues to grow from strength to strength,” said Mudassir Sheikha. “Pakistan is one of the last untapped economies in the world with the fifth largest population and an emerging ecosystem of tech entrepreneurs who are passionate and hungry to make an impact. However, scaling a rapidly-growing business comes with significant challenges. Endeavor’s global network and unparalleled support will help entrepreneurs in Pakistan learn from others, scale locally, expand globally, and ultimately increase their impact. I look forward to working with the Board to grow the Endeavor community in Pakistan and make tech entrepreneurship a strong and sustainable engine of growth for our country.”
Endeavor Pakistan is Endeavor’s 40th office to launch since its founding year in 1997. Entrepreneurs interested in learning more about Endeavor Pakistan can contact us at [email protected].
