ZAB Extravaganza 2017; Entrepreneurship Day

Organized by students of Business Management, the Entrepreneurship Day was held at Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto Institute of Science and Technology (SZABIST) Islamabad. The event gathered around exhibitors from undergraduate and post-graduate programs, providing a one-stop platform for students to learn about business start-up opportunities and support services and get the latest market intelligence. Start-ups play a vital part in driving economic growth and transition. They create job opportunities and keep a country’s economy vibrant. To facilitate this understanding, the department of Management Sciences paid host to “ZAB EXTRAVAGANZA Fall 2017”, an elaborate platform for business students at SZABIST Islamabad which enables the participants to understand key concepts in entrepreneurial behavior (such as the entrepreneurial personality, entrepreneurial decision making, necessity-based entrepreneurship) and to use it to analyze market trends.

Entrepreneurship Day invited distinguished guests and entrepreneurs from a range of sectors to share their experience and help participants get their start-ups off the ground. Special guests included President RCCI Zahid Latif, Brig. Dr. Nadeem Ahsan, Samar Hassan, Zehra Mustafa, Dr. Sumaira Nasim and Professor Safdar Ali.

Another feature of this year’s Entrepreneurship Day was an enhanced Entrepreneur Arena pitching competition. Co-organized by the Faculty of Management Sciences, young entrepreneurs presented their business ideas and plans in the Arena with experts offering valuable feedback. The best student entrepreneurs received Outstanding Start-up Awards to help them realize their start-up project. Entrepreneurship Day is one of SZABIST Islamabad’s signature events to support students who plan to go solo in the marketplace.
