With the establishment of the first incubation centre to currently managing the largest one, NUST remains a pioneer in theentrepreneurial eco system of Pakistan. We started small but have come a long way in terms of instilling a commercial culture in academia. The centre has graduated 49 startups and they are on the way to success. The startups associated with TIC have a much higher rate of success in business and we estimate that our incubated firms have altogether created 850 employment opportunities.
The incubation opportunities at TIC are not limited to NUST alumni only. Since we believe in the power of great teams and innovative minds, thus we seek to nurture talent from all over Pakistan that can contribute towards a “knowledge based” economy. This meritorious approach has brought us many honours; for instance our startups have moved onto some of the world's best accelerators such as Y-Combinator and HeavyBit. Similarly, some have been acquired by international firms for talent and technology; while altogether they have raised more that $3.5 mn in funding.
AT TIC, we are committed towards our vision of creating an entrepreneurial ecosystem in Pakistan towards a knowledge economy. I invite all the aspiring tech entrepreneurs to connect with us and make this vision a reality.
