OPEN is not only a global brand but also most prestigious one for Pakistani entrepreneurs and professionals around the globe. In 2013, we strongly felt that the twin cities have been evolving a unique ecosystem through a fusion of a thriving entrepreneurial community, the most dense universities network in the country and the seat of the federal government which is getting more interested in the role of entrepreneurship, with a focus on engaging overseas Pakistanis as well. Having an OPEN chapter in Islamabad was a logical outcome, and I am proud to be part of the founding team.

I have had the privilege to serve as founding Chairman and then the second president, and these 4 years have been most rewarding. What the entire founding team focused on was to develop an institution that is not only active and contributing, but not dependent on individuals as well.

I have always been for building platforms - structures that serve the community in more ways than one. That's what OPEN Islamabad has always done, and will continue to do. We have connected and engaged across all stakeholders of the system and proudly serve as the go-to platform for many, including government.
