Winners of [email protected] ICT Awards 2017 Announced

Pakistan Software Houses Association for IT & ITES ([email protected]) organised its 14th annual ICT Awards Ceremony during a grand gala dinner on October 27, 2017 at Serena Hotel Islamabad. UBL remained the main sponsor of the event second time in a row.

The annual event brings together the stars of Pakistan’s technology sector on a common platform to celebrate innovation and excellence. Their aim is to recognize the efforts of outstanding achievers that have been making waves both locally and internationally.

The event was attended by a mix of industry leaders and fresh entrepreneurs innovating in the tech sector. Representatives from the government, the business sector, professionals, academia and students were also present.

Entries for the [email protected] ICT Awards were received from all over the country and judgements were held in three major cities of Pakistan to evaluate the applicants and their products. Companies and individuals were asked to pitch their products in front of a panel of esteemed industry experts who came up with the list of winners and runners up.

Chairman [email protected], Barkan Saeed, said on this occasion that

As a community, [email protected] is growing and becoming stronger each day and much of the credit goes to the talented professionals and companies that have been a part of the tech industry. The [email protected] ICT Awards are one of the many ways we bring the community together to network, collaborate, and encourage innovative ways of solving problems.

“The idea behind organizing the [email protected] ICT Awards every year is to celebrate homegrown Pakistani innovators and to promote technology culture in the country” said Jehan Ara, President of [email protected]

We want to celebrate innovation in the Pakistan IT industry and encourage young innovators in the country to work hard on their dream ideas and turn them into products and services that change business as we know it not only in Pakistan but around the globe.

The application process for the awards started in July and companies and individuals applied in 17 Product categories, 15 Service categories and 3 in special categories of Fintech Innovation. Winners received PKR 500,000 cash prize from UBL’s Head of Innovation, Hamayun Sajjad.

[email protected] ICT Awards also open doors to international exposure for local companies working on innovative ideas, as the winners from each of the Product categories get a chance to represent Pakistan and benchmark their products against those from 17 countries at the APICTA (Asia Pacific ICT Alliance) Awards 2017 that are being held in Bangladesh in December this year.

As part of the event this year, there was also a panel discussion moderated by Shehryar Hydri, the newly appointed Secretary General of [email protected]
