A new addition this year to 021Disrupt will be giving select startups the opportunity to deliver elevator pitches to a live audience of investors, mentors, founders, professionals, and people from all walks of life, the statement said.

According to the organisers, the casual format of the conference will allow participants to network with speakers, investors, influencers, mentors, and other professionals in attendance.

During the event, one-on-one sessions with leading VC’s and investors from home and abroad will be offered to select participants.

The Nest I/O is a tech incubator and a community hub launched by P@SHA (Pakistan Software Houses Association for IT & ITES) and a global partner of Google for Startups.

The initiative provides budding entrepreneurs with space, infrastructure, facilities, and knowledge sessions as well as access to a network of mentors and potential investors.
