Live Demo:


Dr. Humayun illustrated that 3D lipo’s ULTIMATE device comes handy for fat loss- skin tightening- facial lift and rejuvenations, all with no surgery or injectable. He further went deep into the science of Non-Surgically breaking up of fat cells through the most advanced Cavitation process where quad transducers ensure ultrasound waves cause severe disruption of the adipose cells, thus breaking down the fat cell membrane were this content is then disposed of the lymphatic system and the liver. The uniqueness of Cavitation is that you can see results from the 1st treatment!


Crylolipolysis also specifically targets fat cells Non-Surgically, by lowering the temperature to -6o; it pinpoints the content of the fat cells and causes a crystallization: no other structure is affected by this process like cavitation the remaining content disposed of naturally. Crylolipolysis delivered results in 4-6 weeks and works excellent on all stubborn fat!


Radio frequency is another important function of 3D Lipo using advanced quad polar technology; radio frequency enables not only skin tightening for the face but also for the body! The concentration of collagen fibers and the regeneration of the collagen and elastin deposits tighten the skin layers creating a smoother, healthier and younger looking skin.

In London, Naheed worked for Bank of America Merrill Lynch for a number of years. She was the Founder CEO of a management consultancy firm in London which serviced clients including PwC and foreign missions.

Ms Ayesha Fahad and Ms Sadaf Fatima both very prominent entrepreneurs who are successfully running their business were invited to share their success stories. Both the stories were an eye opener for the participants. The journey included success and failure phases, the support that they received by the society and people around them and many such interesting turning points specially how these ladies are managing their business along with family and kids.

Ms Ayesha Fahad, owner of Ashlamour and D2R brands narrated her journey from university days, where she initially was exposed to the concept of entrepreneurship and how she developed her interest to start her own business through participation in business plan competitions and exposure to organizations such as SMEDA (Small and Medium Enterprise Development Authority) and initiatives like Shell Tameer. She took her first risk by starting a handbag business by the name Ashlamour. She herself used to design high end ethnic bags and get it made at low cost, using labor that worked remotely.  At this stage she used to sell her product through various outlets.

Railway from China to Rotterdam

The video above shows entrepreneurial experience of the two founders, Jan Paul Vegt and Liu Yong Gao, which is exactly what entrepreneurs around the world go through when taking a difficult decision. Being part of a budding tech-entrepreneurial ecosystem in Karachi I can feel their pain and how much difficult it was to risk taking a new path.

To briefly explain, these entrepreneurs have Rotterdam (Netherlands) based company that exports organic baby food to China. The air transport is too costly for their business and their orders via sea were delayed by two months due to fog. Considering these challenges, they decided to go with railway. Despite the fact Rotterdam is not fully connected with China through railway and most trains from China stop at Germany, railway still proves cheaper than air transport and one month faster than sea transport. For these entrepreneurs, and any other around the world, the best thing is to find the right balance between cost and benefits while guaranteeing delivery of products and services.

This decision does exactly that. It reduces the logistic cost by half compared to air freight and also prevent delays to delivery of products and services. It is not just limited to Jan and Liu only, there are many other entrepreneurs who are facing the same challenges in logistics. With an active railroad connected to European rail network, a third and reliable route opens up that will solve major logistics issue, bringing down cost of business. It will also allow travel options to and from China, giving a boost to both business travels and tourism.

With just sea and air freight, the trade volume between Europe and China is about half a trillion Euro and has been growing steadily. It is likely to touch 650 billion Euros by year 2020 and to facilitate this growth the additional route of rail will be key component.

The implications of this decision are quite significant. For example, China manufactures products for entrepreneurs and businesses from around the world. Innovative startups from incubators like Startup Chile/Y-Combinator and those who run campaigns on Kickstarter/Indiegogo get manufacturing done from China and deliver the products globally. There will be major cost saving benefits with the use of rail network and many other locations will also open up from where the train passes through. By extending the network into South Asia and South-East Asia, through the upcoming CPEC and BCIM corridors, the trade volume will increase even more significantly. The South Asian and South-East Asian markets will further open up to European trade and entrepreneurs and small scale businesses stand to benefit with this connectivity. This will allow innovators from Asia to take advantage of a more connected route and a much more reliable logistics system.

Which means an innovator from Pakistan can get products made in China and have them delivered in Europe and Asia at lower cost and much more convenience. It will also bypass some of the trade barriers that make it difficult to do business between Asian countries and with Europe.

The benefits of this are immense and with growing global trade, the opportunities for innovators, entrepreneurs and global businesses will only get better.

Sindh Education Foundation Launches Next Phase of Education Improvement


Press Release

Under the banner of the SEF Middle and High School (SMHS) Program, with the support of Sindh Government’s Education & Literacy Department, the Foundation has finalized selection of approximately 60 School Operators for establishment of around 125 Middle/High schools in Sindh. These schools are planned to be set up in areas where there are no post-primary schools.

With financial and technical support extended to these post-primary schools, SEF would accomplish enrollment of 30,000 students in Phase I, making a small breakthrough.

“It’s time we provide students with the quality schooling which is aligned with modern methods of teaching and learning supplemented by ICT,” she added.

The session was attended by two members of the SEF BoG, who have recently joined the board namely Mr. Nazir A. Tunio and Mr. Husnain Qamar Shah. Both the members are presently involved in multifaceted activities relating to education in Sindh.

Operators have been selected after a comprehensive, transparent, and merit-based process from scrutiny of applications and to selection of successful operators. This involved an exhaustive to physical verification of proposed sites and, finally, selection of applicants – the entire process lasted for six months, from January to June 2016. The selected operators were oriented on the philosophy of the program, quality-check mechanisms and legal bindings of the contract being made under the program.
