Tibbi.pk, a health technology startup, has won the She Loves Tech Pakistan 2022 competition.

She Loves Tech is a renowned global startup acceleration platform providing funding opportunities, mentorship and networking support to women-led and women-focused startups in over 70 countries.

The competition, organised by CIRCLE Women Association and Habib Bank Limited, was held in Pakistan for the sixth consecutive year. More than 1,000 women-led startups competed this year and 10 rounds were held across 15 cities.

Tibbi.pk, which was awarded Rs300,000 on winning the final round, will now compete in the international finale which will be held in Singapore next month.

According to CIRCLE Women Association, Tibbi.pk, which was founded by Dr Sarah Alam, aims to spread medical awareness and offer online doctor consultation and home delivery of medicines at a reduced cost.

The 10 startups that won in the local rounds were Tibbi.pk, BizB Store, SeeVitals Solutions, Alt-Ed, Stress Saviors Pvt, Event Tech, Mandma NFTs, Shopolace, Dollat Inc and Mountainshop.pk.

In the final round held at Lahore’s Indigo Hotel on Wednesday, the 10 startups pitched their ideas to a panel of judges which included Emerald Labs Managing Director Mian Faizan Mahmood, Unze Trading CEO Khurram Saleem, Conatural Cofounder and CEO Myra Qureshi, Coca Cola Company’s Senior Communications Manager Hiba Dar and former JazzCash CEO Atyab Tahir.

Speaking on the occasion, CIRCLE Women Association Cofounder and CEO Sadaffe Abid said ‘She Loves Tech’ was playing a “leading role in supporting women-led startups and inspiring women and girls across the country”.

“There is a lack of support for women, limited role models and low investment. That is why platforms like ‘She Loves Tech’ and our male allies are critical and together we must collaborate to accelerate the pace of change.

“The most powerful element of ‘She Loves Tech’ is that it is a women-led initiative where women are showing their commitment, shared values and a common mission,” she added.
