Description

The largest digital incubation platform for entrepreneurs with early-stage ideas, Twin Cities-based IdeaGist has participants in 195 countries pursuing more than 4,000 ideas. Hassan Syed’s vision to provide training through this platform for 1 million students was recently adopted by the prime minister’s office in Pakistan. To support the vision, IdeaGist plans to provide 600 educational institutions with business incubators and offer courses in seven emerging technologies. Once the model is firmed up in Pakistan, it is likely to be replicated in many of the countries where Syed already has a foothold.
