Monis Rahman, our guest on episode eight of the Fintech Founders Series, has been building VC funded tech companies in Pakistan since 2008. Monis created the template for new economy companies in the country and his latest venture is a platform to revolutionise e-commerce for small businesses
The session with Monis underlined how Pakistan is in a time where it’s never been easier to raise capital. Pakistan is no longer viewed by investors as a risk factor but as an opportunity. It’s not just financial flows – there have been tens of millions of new online users in the past few years who have access to smartphones and the internet economy. And Pakistani talent is now flying home, leaving jobs overseas, to help build technology-driven services for this changing country!
As Monis said,
“Pakistan’s growth is booming, and my concern is the market might not be able to get talent fast enough to fill this growth.”
