Lean Startup Machine Goes to Pakistan

Today marks the first day of Lean Startup Machine, the weekend hackathon, taking place at the SAIF Innovation Center in Lahore, Pakistan. “It is so exciting to see a buzz of activity around Startups and entrepreneurial ventures. It’s just what needed to happen in Pakistan,” writes an excited Pakistani entrepreneur on her blog.

Pitches will take place at 6 p.m., teams will form at 7:30, and the real work starts at 9 p.m. Hashtag #LSMPakistan. LSM’s Trevor Owens will be liveblogging the event. “We have a crazy amount of startup founders signed-up for the event,” he writes. We’ll be following along, as this reporter is curious as to whether Pakistanis eat pizza at their hackathons.
