The INVENT is the pioneer startup competition in Pakistan that roots back to 2009, when its maiden voyage was started by the IBA Center for Entrepreneurial Development (CED). Since then, INVENT is synonymous to an ecosystem that connects the dreamers, innovators and entrepreneurs with a network of investors, corporations, and mentors to help them showcase their ideas to the world, raise capital, launch corporate collaborations, and scale their world-changing startups.

As in the previous years, drawing from the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), INVENT 2023 will be offering a massive opportunity to the existing startups throughout Pakistan. The INVENT 2023 will be fostering innovation, recognizing groundbreaking ideas, and promoting entrepreneurial excellence within the entrepreneurial ecosystem of Pakistan.
