In light of recent investments and the startup ecosystem, there’s no one else in the ecosystem today who could do justice to ‘The Billion Dollar Mindset’, than CEO and Cofounder Careem, Muddasir Sheikha.
His keynote started after a networking tea break, and was an insight into the Careem journey and milestones thus far. Proudly sharing the fact that all the technological development of Careem has been done in Pakistan, Sheikha shared the organization’s growth with a team of up to 1000 colleagues and having raised $400m+ investment so far.
Key learnings from his journey in his own words are as follows:
- Think Big: look for an opportunity in a big market
- Build to last
- Growth needs curation: we monitor growth every 15 minutes. Growth is deep in our DNA.
- People are key: get the right ones on board!
Mudassir Sheikha concluded on a high note with the hope that there will be more unicorns coming out of this region!
