Karandaaz Invites Incubators and Accelerators for its 2nd Innovation Challenge Fund
Karandaaz Pakistan launched the first round of the Innovation Challenge Fund in 2016. First ICF focused on improving the current mechanism of foreign remittances from Pakistani workers employed in different parts of the world. Some of the crucial aspects that the ICF focused on improving included the outreach (specifically rural), speed, security, cost, ease of use and increased awareness.
In ICF Round 2 Karandaaz will invite applications from incubators, accelerators or similar organizations to propose an innovative mentoring program that caters specifically to female entrepreneurs.
If you have an innovative idea to increase the intake, improve the mentoring and incubation and launch women led enterprises, you can now apply. Deadline to apply is June 7, 2017.
