I am privileged to be a part of the NIC family. It’s been a great run; we are working with multiple big clients and generating enough revenue to support our operations. I am thankful for all the mentorship and the networking opportunities that NIC provided us over our incubation period. Running a startup requires a whole range of skills that our universities hadn’t inculcated. It was during our incubation that we acquired all the different skills that any business requires and emerged as a stronger team.


Osama Gillani

Co-Founder, Mapalytics

My journey at the NIC has been a roller coaster ride. CricFlex was able to meet Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and Shoaib Akhtar all through NIC's efforts. Even after graduating we are an integral part of the NIC family, and I truly believe that NIC has played a pivotal role in getting CricFlex to where it is today. I would like to congratulate Teamup for doing such a great job.


Abdullah Ahmed

CEO, CricFlex

NIC Is a heaven for innovators, disruptors and collaborators. Leaving my hometown and joining NIC to pursue my startup dream was one of the toughest decisions I have ever made. It’s a long journey and NIC folks are helping me out in opening new horizons and opportunities for me. I am glad I made that decision because just months into the program I have developed a robust business plan, forged some key partnership and developed my soft skills. I am thankful to the NIC team for being helpful and collaborative.


Muhammad Adil

Founder, Plantiza

Being an entrepreneur is tough but being a mompreneur is even more challenging. The daycare facility provided at the NIC really helped me focus more on my work. I appreciate the NIC’s effort in creating a safe and an enabling environment for the women entrepreneurs.

Being at the 4YFN was actually a dream come true for me. I got an opportunity to represent Pakistan’s startup ecosystem on a global platform. In addition, it gave me the chance to meet and share ideas with the biggest tech players in the world. I am thankful to Jazz xlr8 for believing in me and helping me get to the next level.


Muhammad Etisam Zafar

Jazz xlr8 program has literally given us the wings to fly. It’s a stamp of validation when a tech giant like Jazz has your back. The support we are getting from the Jazz team with respect to mentorship and payment solutions is truly unparalleled.


Ali Shabbar

Co-Founder, Deaftawk

Having the back of a tech giant like Jazz is a huge plus for a young startup like us. We feel more confident while pitching our idea to the potential investors, customers and partners. It's actually a dream come true and a privilege to be working with the Jazz team.


Sibghat Ullah

Being a tech entrepreneur, you sometimes ignore the commercialization aspect of your startup. Here is where Jazz added a lot of value to our startup. In addition to giving us global exposure they provided us with key user insights and the marketing support necessary for us to reach our target audience.
