The National Incubation Center (NIC) hosted a session on “Do’s and Don’ts of Starting a Business “delivered by America’s best- selling author, columnist, Rhett Power.
The session is part of the “Entrepreneurship” speaker series in Pakistan, at the NIC, in partnership with the US Embassy.
In the session, Rhett Power talked about various elements of becoming a successful entrepreneur, the challenges entrepreneurs struggle with and how to grow a sustainable business. During his presentation, he also shared his experiences with the startups on how developing a business strategy is essential for being a successful entrepreneur.
The session created an opportunity for the startups at the NIC to connect with the presenter, exchanging thoughts and ideas as well as their experiences of running their startups.
Acknowledging the efforts of Pakistani entrepreneurs, Rhett Power said,
“Whether in the United States or Pakistan, entrepreneurs face similar challenges in figuring out how to take an idea and turn it into a successful business.”
“As the first speaker in the Entrepreneurship Speaker Series sponsored by the U.S. Embassy, I had the opportunity to share my experiences with bright, energetic Pakistani entrepreneurs, and to learn from them, as well. I hope this will encourage greater partnership between U.S. and Pakistani entrepreneurs,” he added.
“It is encouraging to see the partnership we are building with the U.S embassy, opening windows of opportunity for our startups to learn and to grow, this is just the beginning and we are looking forward to establishing a long-term relationship with the embassy,” said Project Director, NIC, Parvez Abbasi.
Mr. Abbasi is also the co-founder of TeamUp, managing partner with Jazz xlr8 for the National Incubation Center.
Last year in February, Minister of IT, Mrs. Anusha Rahman launched the National Incubation Centre by JAZZ. Seven more incubation centers are in the pipeline and will be launched in coming months.
