The program will select up to 12 early-stage, impact driven ventures from across Pakistan each of which will be exposed to a step-by-step methodology to rapidly and systematically validate their venture’s business model over five days.

Shah Saud Sahibzada, Co-Founder/CEO of Epiphany said:

“As with other spheres of human development, new ideas are critical to our society’s development and progress. Social entrepreneurs are the torch bearers of indigenous solutions to problems, both old and new.”
