All the three startups are unique in their ideas and execution. Mr Hassan is a business graduate and his idea (E-Darzi) is based on an android application on tailoring & delivering of stitched clothes on customer’s doorstep. Dr Adeel is a veterinarian who is committed to provide low cost hygienic food to the community and his idea (Kitchenette Café) is extracting a very good business from his newly launched cafeteria at City Campus, while Mr Sajjad who is also a business graduate, has changed his passion into profession by opting for photography & designing. His idea (90 X media) is growing rapidly at UVAS BIC.
Speaking on the occasion, Prof Pasha said that there are many opportunities for business in Pakistan even in the Pak-China Economic Corridor (CPEC) and UVAS students get maximum benefit from them. He asked the students to bring innovative ideas and UVAS will provide all possible assistance in implementing students plans/ideas regarding starting their new businesses. He appreciated the efforts of students and their mentors.
