021DISRUPT 2018

The Pulse of Innovation in the City by the Sea

021Disrupt promises to give our partners and participants the opportunity to rub shoulders with the titans of the tech industry. Not only will you become a part of our region’s premier technology and entrepreneurship conference, but you also get to actively contribute to the conversations that will shape the future of innovation in Pakistan.

For the second coming of 021Disrupt, we draw inspiration from the city of its origin, Karachi.

The city by the sea lives, inhaling and exhaling with each surging wave. Much like the startup ecosystem, sometimes the tides are low, sometimes they are raging, wild. The sea creates opportunity, is a muse to an artist, a hope to a dream. It rocks the boat but also brings it to the shore. It’s busy with responsibility, often overwhelmed, over-worked, yet blue with optimism.

It has drive.

021Disrupt is a product of this ambitious, bold, chaotic, unapologetic city and its people. Progress and innovation is never a straight line. It’s messy and chaotic and hard-earned. But it’s this city’s courage, resilience, and drive that allows it to overcome obstacles and hurdles. And it’s only when you decide to fight through no matter what and keep moving forward, that true disruption can happen.

A Glimpse of the Magic

Last year, we put together the first ever 021Disrupt, and were swep away in the tidal wave of enthusiasm and feedback we received from all over the country. Global and local investors, stakeholders and thought leaders from the entrepreneurial community came to Karachi to chart the future of the startup ecosystem of Pakistan.

With the winds of disruption all set to descend upon Karachi this November once again, you can catch a glimpse of the magic from last year here.
