“I’ve spent a lot of time working with CEOs and founders in Pakistan, where building a business comes with a whole set of other challenges. Combined with the complexity of creating new and improved product or services (which require time and support to take shape), startup founders really have their work cut out for them.
At High Output Ventures, we believe that all founders can be world-class if and when given the right type of guidance and support at the earliest stages. And that’s what High Output Ventures, it’s Seed Fund and Accelerator Program, is all about. We want to find and assist the best and brightest founders globally and in Pakistan – at both early and later stages – not just to get started and find traction, but to build great companies that will scale and create more opportunity for others.“
His expertise will help us to keep on delivering remarkable experiences for our startups, old and new. Mahmood is a great fit for our team and values, and we look forward to having him on the team!
Welcome to HOV, Mahmood!
