Speed dating also known as “breakout meetings” are becoming increasingly popular day by day.

These meetings consist of 15–20 minutes of one on one meetings between startups and investors, where startups get the chance to pitch their business to multiple renowned investors in the hope of finding their ‘perfect match’.

Through speed dating, startups not only in Pakistan but around the world get a chance to interact with local and international investors. Generally to get the attention of an investor, a startup founder has to jump through multiple hoops but through recurring speed dating events known as VC Exchange or VCX, daftarkhwan has made accessibility of multiple local & international venture capitalists a reality for Pakistani startups.

The concept of speed dating started as there was a need for a platform that could connect startups and investors, resulting in a win-win situation for both entities and despite the impact of covid — 19, rockstar startups have raised $$ worldwide.

In Pakistan alone, Bykea, raised $13 million to jumpstart the transport industry, a food delivery startup, Byte raised $150,000 earlier this year and most recently, Bagallery a 3 year old fashion & beauty e-commerce platform has gone on to raise $900,000 from LIVC.

daftarkhwan launched itself with a vision to not just provide infrastructure to entrepreneurs but to create a wide network of investors, individuals and startups that could fuel each others growth and in our mission to do just that, we are now a multi-city coworking space with 500+ residents and a network of 3000+ and with our recurring VC Exchange, we’ve managed to help multiple startups get conversations going, raise funding & get mentorship from the creme de la creme of the investment world.

VCX is a recurring event that happens once every two months so if you’re an investor looking to invest in some of the most promising startups of Pakistan or a startup looking to raise finance then you can apply on our website
