Addressing a student body of 70 students, the ceremony was moderated by Dr Shahid Qureshi Director CED where he explained the rationale and need for engineers to develop innovative products but lack an entrepreneurial acumen and will to do so. He stressed that engineers and people hailing from IT are most suited to creating successful ventures as they have a skill which they can leverage. Speaking on the occasion, the Dean and Director of IBA Dr Farrukh Iqbal expressed a similar concern for the engineering students that they need to solve problems of everyday life and this course at IBA CED will help them realize their true potential. He encouraged students to actively participate in the program as many students before them have done so, helping many to realize their potential and start small businesses.
