“Pakistan has trailed in its adoption to the internet economy and startup formation,” Noor Sweid, general partner at Global Ventures stated, “The startup boom in Pakistan is attracting global attention.”
The Founder of Abhi, Omair Ansari said that his startup has seen “explosive growth” since its emergence. Moreover, the company plans its Series A round early next year.
