5 good reasons not to miss 021 Disrupt

With 021Disrupt less than a week away, my heart rate has begun its ascent.

During Nov 10th and 11th 2018, the Nest I/O is hosting 021 Disrupt in the city of the sea with various activities, discussion panels, and the one-on-one sessions with investors. 1,000+ attendees, 50+ speakers, and 100+ startups from across the globe will all meet under the same roof in Karachi, for “the largest tech conference in Pakistan”

16+ investment firms will be in attendance at 021Disrupt 2018 as active members to invest, judge and mentor the startups, professionals and individuals. Meaning you will be on the floor full of sages, savants and speakers on November 10th –11th, as well as in the pool of fun, food and freaking knowledge. If you’re in attendance, come to find me, and I’d love to chat!

021Disrupt’s structure is stylized into specialized workshops, panel discussions, stage speakers, startup pitches and much more that will bear their own individual topics and speakers. Some, but not all, of the themes will be discussed on-stage and away from the stage are:

Robotics, AI, Fintech, Big Data, The Future of Work, Sustainability, VR & AR, Technology, Marketing, Growth Metrics, Pitches, Media and Popular Entrepreneurial Culture, the Sharing Economy, Pakistan’s Government Policy & Crossover, Cybersecurity, Scalability, Blockchain and much more.

Don’t worry…. I’ve got you covered.

Here are 5 solid reasons not to miss 021Disrupt Conference. I’m sure you won’t regret the shot.

1.      The Best in Class Global Speakers

We all look up to the summits and conferences happening across the globe, but we’re often unable to make it to those events due to high cost and tough entrance requisites. 021Disrupt is specifically designed on international lines and standards to lift the face of the Pakistani Entrepreneurial Eco-System and is providing a chance to you and all local entrepreneurs to experience and interact with an array of specialized international speakers in our own homeland.

Speakers from different parts of the world are landing in for this event and will be on stage with their wisdom, experience and experimental journeys. It will be overwhelming but if you can take on a visible role, that’s an easy way to set yourself apart from the crowd.

2.      Unparalleled Networking Opportunities

You will have the opportunity to rub shoulders with 1500+ VIPs, Delegates, Mentors, Startup Founders, Industry Gurus, and Investors. There would be no wall between you and the person you would like to speak to, swap your card and get to the top of the mountain! It’s not only about meeting the best people in town but you may win a few great friends for life. All you need is to be there with an open heart and a free mind.
