Let’s Make Ideas Happen – Calling All Tech Startups to Apply for Launchpad 14
With the vision of instilling the culture of tech entrepreneurship and achieving sustainable growth for early-stage startups by providing opportunities to create commercially viable technology startups from Pakistan. Plan9 was introduced by Punjab Information Technology Board in 2012. With more than 180 startups graduated and 13 cycles later we have created an impact with our startups of raising more than $5.3m investment, creating more than 1200+ jobs and $75m accumulated evaluation of all the startups.
With Launchpad 14 around the corner, we are promoting the motto #makeideashappen. We are constantly on the lookout for the ‘Futurepreneurs’ to take part in the Launchpad. All those who have a viable business idea and are looking to kick-start their tech start-up, Plan9 is the platform for you.
Launchpad takes place across three major cities of Pakistan including Karachi, Lahore, and Islamabad along with Multan, Faisalabad. This time around we are introducing Gujranwala as our station. It is open to all Pakistani citizens who are able to meet the eligibility criteria. The event gives a legitimate platform to aspiring startups who wish to get incubated and avail access to mentorships, screenings, workshops, talks, presentations and more. At the end of the event, the qualified and shortlisted startups become part of a six-month-long incubation at Plan9.
Today, the Launchpad receives over five hundred applications out of which 15 are selected for incubation. Needless to say, the competition is tough and gets tougher every year as more and more Pakistanis become aware of the opportunity to get their startup off the ground.
