About Karachi

We are based in Karachi The city of lights, a sprawling metropolis and the largest city of Pakistan with a population of over 13 million.

At the end of 1700’s ,the settlers of Kolachi village started trading across the sea with Muscat and the Persian Gulf region. Later, the village started to grow as the commercial hub and a port for trade. For the protection of this developing area, a small fort was constructed. This fort was handed over to Talpurs by the Khan of Kalat in 1795. The British recognized the importance of the city as a trading post and they captured the city in February 1843 under the command of Sir Charles Napier and the city was annexed as a district of the British Indian Empire. In 1846, it was home to around 50,000 people.

Investing in the riskiest phase of a startup, we wanted to reflect that very spirit of entrepreneurship and mercantile culture of the city that transformed it from a tiny fishing village called ‘Kolachi’ on the Indus river delta into a global megacity. Karachi remains the financial capital of Pakistan as it accounts for most of Pakistan’s revenue generation. It generates approximately 53.38% of the total tax collections of the Federal Board of Revenue. Karachi produces about 30 percent of value-added in large scale manufacturing and 20% of the GDP of Pakistan. In February 2007, the World Bank identified Karachi as the most business-friendly city in Pakistan. In 2010, research by the global human resources company Mercer Consulting found Karachi to be the most inexpensive city in the world.
