“Whether in the United States or Pakistan, entrepreneurs face similar challenges in figuring out how to take an idea and turn it into a successful business. As the first speaker in the Entrepreneurship Speaker Series sponsored by the U.S. Embassy, I had the opportunity to share my experiences with bright, energetic Pakistani entrepreneurs, and to learn from them, as well. I hope this will encourage greater partnership between U.S. and Pakistani entrepreneurs.”
