Network Partner Program (NPP) is an initiative of Plan9 to establish technology based incubators across Pakistan by equipping universities with the necessary skills to establish, govern and manage incubation facilities established within the vicinity of the respected university. MOU's with 25 universities all over Pakistan signed.
WHY DO WE DO IT
Striving for our vision of making entrepreneurship omni-present across Pakistan, we support both public and private institutes through our Network Partnership Program. It is designed to demonstrate new and successful ways to support entrepreneurship with a special focus on technology.
The NPP intends to expand incubators across Pakistan and is designed to accelerate the successful development of entrepreneurial companies through an array of business support resources and services, developed and orchestrated by incubator management and offered both in the incubator and through its network of contacts.
