Showcasing the best of technology, startups & innovations by Pakistani entrepreneurs.

Pakistan Tech Summit 2020 - Silicon Valley is an invite-only event organized to celebrate startups, innovators & inventors working on disruptive technologies around the globe. The event will showcase a delegation of 50+ entrepreneurs, technology experts & leaders visiting from Pakistan.

The event acts as a platform for the community to come together & work in collaboration for the future of Pakistan & build bridges between Silicon Valley & the Pakistani tech ecosystem.

Why Pakistan?
Pakistan is the 6th largest country in the world with a population of 220 million, around 50% of the population speaks English making it the world's 3rd largest english speaking country. With over 70 million people having access to high speed internet, Pakistan has more internet users than the population of all Nordic countries combined.

According to Bloomberg, Pakistan is the world's fastest growing retail market in fact Uber's CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said Pakistan is one of Uber's fastest growing markets after Uber's $3.1 billion acquisition of Careem, a ride hailing unicorn founded by a Pakistani entrepreneur.

Careem is not the only one, Pakistan has produced the minds behind some of the world's leading tech companies including Afiniti ($1.6 billion AI startup), KeepTruckin ($1.25 billion startup), FireEye (world's leading cybersecurity company), Cavium (sold for $6 billion) & many others.
