Sindh Education Minister and US Ambassador inaugurate startup lab

Sindh provincial minister for education Sardar Shah has said that he glade to have inaugurated the Startup Lab today with the US Ambassador Blome.

Since 2012, U.S. Consulate General Karachi and the Sindh Department of Culture have worked closely to establish Lincoln Corners throughout Sindh.  Lincoln Corners are now operating in Karachi, Hyderabad, Khairpur and Larkana.
Lincoln Corner Karachi, where we are right now, was inaugurated in July 2016, and I am grateful to the U.S. Consulate in Karachi for only establishing the space, but continuously working on bringing new programs, and resources here.

He said; “We have public libraries all over Sindh to facilitate the students, and at the libraries where Lincoln Corners are, I know that the student interest, information sharing, skill building multiplies infinitely”.

“I have heard of the Startup Lab’s around the globe, and It’s good to see that U.S. Department of State has brought this phenomenon here. I know so many students coming to Liaquat Library will make the most of it, and I also know this will attract many more aspiring entrepreneurs to come here”.

“I hope women make the most of this opportunity to become entrepreneurs and to not only empower their own selves financially, but also contribute to the economic development of this region”.

We will continue to partner with the U.S. Consulate in Karachi to ensure that these facilities and resources reach the maximum number of students, especially those who wouldn’t otherwise have access to them, and I would request you all you join me in this endeavor and spread the word about this amazing new Startup Lab.
