After a very successful event in March this year, Startup Weekend is coming back to Lahore with a special focus on Education. The event, being presented by LUMS Centre for Entrepreneurship and Ilm Ideas 2, will be held from August 5 – 7.

Startup Weekend has been organized for a couple of years now in Pakistan’s largest cities. It’s main aim has always been to promote a culture of entrepreneurship and bring about creative solutions for our most pressing issues. This time around, they have introduced an education theme to the event, aptly calling it ‘Startup Weekend Lahore Ed-Innovation’.

Pakistan’s education sector has a lot of potential and over the last couple of years several startups have surfaced that are trying to make education accessible to all – EdJunction, Teddict, and Knowledge Platform to name a few. But a sector that is vast and has an equally big room for improvement, several startups can peacefully co-exist to better our education system.

Startup Weekend Lahore is gathering education innovators to interact with like-minded individuals from all over Pakistan who have a vision to empower our education system with creative solutions and innovative ideas. The event will give participants a chance to meet with startup coaches, mentors, and industry influentials who can help them materialize their ideas.
