KARACHI: The Nest launched their university outreach program for its third batch of incubatees to a full house at FAST University on October 29th, 2015.
“The Nest i/o Flight Show” as it is called, aims to promote technology entrepreneurship amongst students so that they may consider entrepreneurship as a viable option earlier on in their lives versus the typical 9 to 5 job.
The Nest i/o resonated well with a budding entrepreneurial ecosystem at FAST-NUCES.
The launch event featured two incubated ventures from The Nest i/o – Rateker, an anonymous peer rating platform to be used for personality development, and Whisper O, an application that allows people to share their stories through the medium of sound.
Both these startups had their final year project ideas transformed into viable business ventures – an ambition that The Nest i/o seeks to promote amongst students at different universities and colleges.
They shed light on their experiences at The Nest i/o and how it provided a free-flowing, collaborative facility that offered them workspace, mentors, networking opportunities and business acumen to help their ventures succeed.
