“Rebuild KP through Entrepreneurship and Tourism”
Pakistan is a country with a very young demographic; almost 70% of Pakistan’s population is under the age of 15-45, and 60% of the population is under 30. This indicates an excellent opportunity to enable them to solve local issues through leveraging the power of technology and entrepreneurship. One of such issues is the revival of the Tourism sector in Pakistan, as it is known for beautiful landscapes and rich cultural heritage. To revive tourism and make it the engine of economic growth, Tech Valley launches the first ever tourism conference in KP with the motive to support tourism with an entrepreneurial spirit.
