Over the past two years we’ve grown to about five million users, twice the rate of Facebook’s growth in Pakistan. The great thing about Pring is that it works whether you are online or offline with just SMS access. This creates an all-inclusive dialog with everyone.
Prior to e-Business, I co-foundedByteSense (Pvt) Ltd, a company formed to bridge the gap between the industry and telecommunications users.
I’ve done my Bachelors in Computer System Engineering from GIKI and fresh out of University I started my first startup Sixth Sense where we created computer based training courses for clients like the UN and ICWFD.
I then joined Ericsson as System Integrator and later Solution Architect. During my stay with Ericsson, I worked with Warid Telecom during its early expansion
