T echJuice decided to attend the first ever All Pakistan Startup Expo & Awards 2015 at Pak-China Friendship Center, Islamabad this Saturday and we were astonished at the arrangements made and loved the chosen venue for the event. Startup Magazine and Entrepreneurial Development Institute (EDI) made an excellent effort in terms of gathering attention and sponsorship for the startup expo. However, we have some concerns, before talking about these let us tell you what happened at the event.
The 100 startups selected for the event were provided with stall spaces at the venue to exhibit their products in front of people from all walks of life. The exhibition area was open for all, but the other sessions were open to ticket holders only including keynote speeches, syndicate session, lunch and networking sessions. 3D printing seemed to be the most prominent technology at the startup expo. Apart from 3D printing, a few standout technologies were Kinect Cricket app from Game Dot Play and a facial recognition app from Kavtech Solutions.
