Islamabad December 2020: GITEX Technology Week serves as home to tech startups. Amid visa and COVID-19 restrictions, the Ministry of Information Technology and Telecommunication successfully pitched 3 startups from Ignite NIC Program.

Among the participating startups – WALEE, Pakistan’s largest and fastest growing influencer and social commerce platform, that enables businesses to discover, contract, collaborate and pay influencers who market and sell for them at scale. Today, 50,000+ influencers and businesses across 250+ cities are on Walee.pk. SE Drop (Save Every Drop) is another startup showcased at the mega event, offering two product lines – one: wastewater recycling systems to deal with water scarcity and second: natural, alcohol and chemical-free disinfectants. While the third startup, encore pay is a fintech which provides a digital payments platform to financial institutions including banks, telecoms and payment networks.

All three Ignite NIC Program startups attracted interest from the public and private entities.
