PITB Opens Doors to Startups for Leveraging Its Technology & Expertise

The recent partnership between Uber and PITB has set a welcome precedent for startups and other companies to use PITB’s technology solutions and expertise to boost their businesses and promote entrepreneurship in Pakistan.

The signed memorandum of understanding stated that the two would be working together for the promotion of effective use of technology. In a conversation with an Uber spokesperson, we’ve confirmed that the partnership will help the company significantly reduce the time it takes for background verification among other options that are being explored. The overarching similarity, which has allowed PITB and Uber to enter a long term agreement, is the vision they share for a more empowered and self sustained future.

It bears mentioning that PITB really has been at the forefront when it comes to boosting entrepreneurship in Punjab and Pakistan. They’ve built some great software solutions in the past few years to digitize government departments and projects that benefit the public like a restaurant invoice monitoring system, efforts to make BISP more transparent and overhauling how healthcare is approached in Punjab.

If you’re a startup or a company that shares PITB’s commitment towards using technology for public good, you should get in touch for a possible partnership

PITB backed accelerators and incubation centers in Pakistan are consistently among the top destinations for startups and this latest move could enable them and even MNCs to chip in to enhance the lives of the cities and areas they operate in. We’d encourage you to get in touch with the PITB if you think they can enable you in your goals of empowering the communities you live in.

Some companies like Careem have already lauded the move. A representative from the company told us that they really hail the efforts of PITB in supporting start-ups in Pakistan. Regarding a potential collaboration with PITB, he added:

We are keen on fostering such partnerships that help provide safe, secure and convenient transportation services to the people of Pakistan.

Transport isn’t the only area where startups and companies could benefit from PITB. A cursory glance at the Board’s coverage on ProPakistani alone will help you appreciate the width of the sectors they operate in. .
