"This was my first ever exposure to the complex but fascinating world of the startup culture, and it was a humbling experience to partake in it alongside the extremely talented individuals from Pakistan. The group itself had a wonderful vibe and everyone was open minded to learn new ways to solve old problems."

"I got so much out of it both personally and commercially... Every committed entrepreneur who wants to scale their business or wishes to build an business at some point in their life should go on this trip. A week with Arzish and his team will be one of the best investments of your time ever. You will have wished you had done it sooner.”
