Scientific and Technological innovation is essential to the future well-being for Pakistan. The ability of the nation to sustain economic growth, increase its standard of living, and improve human health and the environment depends, in many ways, on its success in developing and commercializing new products, processes, and services through potential start-ups/spin-offs.

With this vision, National Idea Bank was launched last year in 2021 to take commercialization ecosystem in Pakistan to the next level by selecting and supporting Pakistan’s most brilliant startup ideas and providing them limelight on international level. This year too, National Idea Bank is expected to attract even stronger and promising startup ideas from all across the country and we look forward to seeing such startups get the support and recognition they deserve.

With this wonderful initiative, I would like to congratulate the organizing team of National Idea Bank and NED University (as collaborators) and other partners for their indefatigable efforts and look forward to seeing their vision come to fruition.
