Imran Khan – CoHost TechDrive, MD RapidCompute
“Earlier, it wasn’t essential for all businesses to understand technology and they could go about running their organizations. But the world has evolved and it is more critical than ever to educate people on how tech is the single biggest driver of change in our society today, be it via cloud computing, artificial intelligence, FinTechs or communication mediums. Discussing these ecosystem stories will help upcoming generations of leaders learn from real scenarios from the IT industry and we hope the initiative can provide insights and ideas to aid our local industries to adapt and grow”.

“Everyone loves a good story, and we’re here to bring you just that! With Imran as my co-host for the show, I know we’ll bring the right kind of energy from our tech ecosystem, and showcase the right stories through our conversations and topics. We will touch upon not only the exciting stuff happening as enterprises retrain themselves to embrace digitizing but also all the other wonderful innovations happening as our tech entrepreneurs and the startup ecosystem reach a level of maturity”.

“It is a pleasure working with Imran, Aqsa and the Rapid team on this one. Imran is one of the most tenacious techies that I know, and we had been discussing putting out content together for a time now. But with Covid, perhaps it’s pushed all of us to rethink and speed up in creating platforms which become a sort of narrative understudy to the massive realigning that Pakistans economy is doing with technology as the most important fulcrum in play. It is our duty more than just the fun of it, to talk stories that speak of the wonderful innovation cycles happening in this country and from all corners of Pakistan. Hopefully TechDrive turns out to be as we have envisioned it. If not, we are all giving it our best shot…”.
