Future Fest has been an amazing experience; we met so many local startups and ecosystem players. We have been able to discover how to softland our company Takadao in Pakistan – the opportunity is massive, we see that there’s a huge young population who is interested in knowing how we build our Takaful insurance company and also in adopting our solution when we launch in Pakistan.

It’s the first time for me and my team visiting Pakistan. It’s been a wonderful experience. We’ve met hundreds of people. We’ve learned a lot about the Pakistani ecosystem and the edtech vertical, the industry we’re in. This visit has been a great validation that we should be visiting Pakistan again. I would like to thank Future Fest and our partners at DCO for this incredible opportunity.
