Our unique international programming facilitates teamwork around the world. We are creating a 'global Pakistani nervous system' that helps Pakistanis deepen their relationship to Pakistan, and exposes them to different cultures and perspectives. Pakathon's flagship event is a weekend hackathon held simultaneously across multiple cities around the globe. We are a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit.
Through our events and programs we help our participants launch mission-driven businesses. We provide mentorship on business planning, prototyping as well as domain expertise from practitioners. For our university partners we provide capacity building tools to run our programs. We also create and distribute content on Pakistan, technology, design and business through our blogs, forums and other media.
CREATING GLOBAL NETWORKS
Global networks are important in the success of any business. Through our online collaboration tools and expansive reach, both in Pakistan and in chapters across three continents, our programs connect you to potential co-founders, partners, employees, mentors and investors all around the world.
Our goal is to nurture the entrepreneurial culture in Pakistan and beyond. We raise money through our partners to help our companies succeed. In return for equity, we provide high performing teams funding to grow their business.
