Three startups of University of Karachi students have been listed among the top 10 innovative companies of Pakistan by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
The renowned international ranking agency, Good Firm, has included Xord in its top 30 Global Innovative Campiness working in BlockChain.
A ceremony organized by the University of Karachi was held to commemorate and appreciate the students, whose startups have been named by the Japan International Cooperation Agency among the top 10 companies of Pakistan.
The KU Vice-Chancellor Professor Dr. Khalid Mahmood Iraqi congratulated these listed students and said that they are an inspiration to other students of the University of Karachi.
“These companies are positively contributing to the software exports of Pakistan and are representing Pakistan globally.” He mentioned that these students are an asset to the University of Karachi and to our country.
Professor Dr Khalid Iraqi also said, “Recently we have also established a business incubation center at the University of Karachi to help and encourage students to come up with unique ideas and take them to a commercial scale.”
Dr Khalid Iraqi mentioned, “We know how much energy and potential there is in our students, we just need to tap into their potential and positively channel their energy for the benefit of this country.”
KU Students’ Advisor Dr Syed Asim Ali said this event was organized in order to encourage and recognize the service of the students. He added that many successful such students are usually not encouraged who are running their own companies and are positively contributing to the country.
“Now we will invite students from all departments of the university and honor them because they are an inspiration to other students as well,” he added. Later, the KU VC Professor Dr. Khalid Iraqi presented the students with the University’s emblem.
