Thanks for clicking through to this page. If you came to this page, you probably got an email from me or from my assistant, and you’re joining me in an experiment to get more communications out the door faster, more concise, and more directly from me versus my team members. Over the years, with all of the countries that I have traveled with, and connected with literally tens of thousands of people, one thing is clear- as much positive impact as we’ve collectively had together, I have been personally limited on my ability to follow up with many of you… partially because of the sheer number of people that I have met, but the truth more recently that I have noticed, is that I have a difficult time at times with text based communication… I am dyslexic. Did you know that 30% of American entrepreneurs are dyslexic? Well… so am I. Which now makes sense why in high school I would get perfect grammar, perfect vocabulary, but get destroyed by my teachers on my spelling… so be gentle with me in these experiments as I explore different ways of communicating to help drive the vision of Tech Ranch. I truly believe that entrepreneurs working around the world together can make for a better world. We can build shared prosperity, introduce new technologies and ways of doing things that make the world a better place… and because this is important, I am now going to start experimenting a lot to see what works on sharing more about the work that we’re doing together to get the word out to a larger audience. Let me know your thoughts, I am always open to your supportive feedback, both “good” and “bad”. Through this, we can get there together faster!

The Pakistani startup ecosystem is evolving. Every day new ventures emerge, creating niches or fulfilling unmet demands. However, the field remains relatively new and can benefit from people who have been in the art it for some time now.
