Qadeer along with General Manager Innovation The Superior Group, Faizan Mahmood have brought this exchange program to Pakistan with hopes to expand opportunities for the youth. Notable names facilitating and making this grant possible are Faris Alami, Founder & CEO, International Strategic Management, Inc., Antoine Dubeauclard, President, Media Genesis, Jonathan Quarles, Founder & CEO, The BTL Group and Marian Reich, Executive Director, Global Ties Detroit.
The two week professional program will include three primary elements: 1. Technical trainings 2. IVLP style site visits 3. Customized mentoring and individual coaching. The detailed breakdown of the program will be announced soon.
‘Being an entrepreneur myself and having an extensive background in running exchange programs for founders, I know how experiencing the startup culture around the world matures a founder. Through the deep rooted network that I have across the entrepreneurial ecosystem, I would want to reach out to every deserving entrepreneur to make the best of this opportunity.’ – Faizan Mahmood, GM Innovation The Superior Group and Head of Strategy, Innovation District 92.
The program is open to everyone in Punjab and will run a vigorous selection procedure to select the best. Women, minorities, people with disabilities, at-risk youth and other underserved communities are highly encouraged to apply for this two week long entrepreneurship exchange.
