“We see a lot of potential in Pakistan when it comes to entrepreneurship. We’re excited to collaborate with NSPIRE to add value in the entrepreneurial ecosystem.”
Chief Operating Officer of NETSOL Technologies, Omar Ghauri said,
“NETSOL’s NSPIRE incubator is a relatively new player in this market; however, NETSOL has been contributing towards the success of entrepreneurs since its inception by giving entrepreneurial technologists an outlet to create new and useful products for clients around the globe. Collaboration with Microsoft in this front, and particularly the use of Microsoft’s powerful software engineering tools, will surely help add intense and increasing value to the NSPIRE incubator for aspiring entrepreneurs.”
This partnership aims to provide more opportunities to everyone in the technology industry of Pakistan.
