Islamabad: The Ecosystem

Pakistan is sometimes very underrepresented. impACT Islamabad International was one aspect in making Pakistan part of the map! It is in step with a lot of the social enterprise innovation. What was special was that it was in Islamabad. Why? The ecosystem in Islamabad does not have as much tractions as other cities in Pakistan. You do not find so many good programmes coming to Islamabad. This leads to founders having to travel overseas. impACT Islamabad International was one aspect in attracting good brain power to Pakistan.
