KARACHI: Islamic Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture (ICCIA) hosted ‘Best of Entrepreneurship Pakistan (BOE)’ session at IBA Karachi. Event was about eCommerce and Entrepreneurship in Pakistan and was organised to highlight challenges faced by industry and opportunities it brings for young entrepreneurs.

BOE event aimed to share entrepreneurial trends and stories that will shape future of eCommerce in country. Aalia Jafar Director of International Relations ICCIA said, “We live in a world where failure is considered a success. Because we now know true innovation happens when you try new things, when you experiment and when you fail. As famous saying from Silicon Valley goes Fail early, fail often, but fail forward!” Haider Zamin Deputy Director Trade Development Authority of Pakistan discussed TDAP’s e-commerce strategy.

He shared how TDAP is organising free B2C training sessions for women entrepreneurs where they can register themselves and begin selling their products on Amazon. Hamza Abdul Rauf, Co-founder and Director of Telemart said, “Success story includes lending his expertise to companies like Gul Ahmed and Artistic Milliners back when technology wasn’t as prevalent as today.” How tech cannot fix a broken business.

It can only be done through hard work and determination. He emphasised need for proper mentorship and incubation centers for current generation.  Dr. Sara Saeed Khurram Co-Founder and CEO of Sehat Kahani discussed how it wasn’t an easy journey but one that was worth taking. She hoped more women are encouraged to become entrepreneurs so they can be independent and change world for those who will come after them. Sultan Rehman Vice President Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry was also present at panel.

Abdul Badih El Dada Director Events Management at ICCIA highlighted ICCIA efforts in development of entrepreneurial ecosystem and invited relevant institutions for developing partnership to promote entrepreneurial culture in Pakistan and beyond.  Session with an audience of 300 included Technical and Vocational Education and Training focused on e-commerce, university students, aspiring entrepreneurs and business enthusiasts.
