Briefing on Startup Punjab portal given at a presser
Punjab Minister for Higher Education and IT Raja Yassir Humayun held a press conference at the Directorate General of Public Relations (DGPR) on the participation of startups from Punjab in the Expo 2020 Dubai.
Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB) chairman Azfar Manzoor and PITB DG e-Governance Sajid Latif were also present on the occasion.
Expo 2020 Dubai commenced on October 1, and it is being held for six months. It will conclude on March 31, 2022. Participation from Pakistan has been scheduled over these six months with Punjab showcasing in November.
The Government of Punjab would showcase Punjab’s Startup Ecosystem at the Expo 2020 Dubai under the theme “Startups & Innovation”.
During the press conference, the minister gave a detailed briefing on Startup Punjab portal through which potential startups have been selected for Expo 2020 Dubai.
He stated, “Punjab government has introduced an online platform, Startup Punjab, developed by PITB. The portal aims at bridging the disconnect between Pakistani startups and international stakeholders under the vision of ‘Invest in Punjab, Buy from Punjab and Work for Punjab’.”
Startup Punjab is an initiative to connect startups, investors, consumers and talent from Punjab with potential international stakeholders. The portal will be formally launched by the Chief Minister of Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar soon.
Registration of startups commenced on September 30. Of the 311 applications received, 20 were shortlisted by experts based on the marketability of ideas and products/services.
“20 startups have been selected for Dubai Expo 2020 through the PITB developed Startup Punjab portal. All these startups have been selected transparently with respect to their startup domain, growth, revenue, potential impact in the industry and investment readiness. The presentation skills and strength of the teams in terms of talent and skills were also taken into consideration,” the minister said.
The selected startups will present their products at Expo 2020 Dubai from November 16 to 28 in groups.
