Through this collaboration, Social Innovation Lab’s incubator The Hatchery would replicate its flagship incubation program globally. The expertise of both companies will be combined to offer skills development and crowdfunding support through training, workshops and conferences. The epicenter of these activities will be United Kingdom, Pakistan and the countries where the need to organize such events is rising. These activities will aim towards sharing knowledge and experiences of social entrepreneurs as well as provide ancillary support to social start-ups in a cross-cultural setting.

It is worth mentioning that it is the first time a British company is collaborating with a Pakistani incubator to start a fellowship program covering local and global grounds. This partnership comes off as no small feat for the entrepreneurial ecosystem of Pakistan.
