21740610_1451168864952104_738811914347921990_nBuying and selling property for a common person has never been so easy. In developing countries like Pakistan, it has been a challenge for small investors and salaried person to invest in real estate. Due to unstable political situation, law and order and fluctuated market situation, people are more cautious about investing in long term property projects.

Apart from all the negativity and low property market in the capital city, investors and commoners have seen successful property projects in recent past such as Gulberg Greens, DHAs, Bahria Town Rawalpindi, Multi-Gardens Societies, Jammu & Kashmir Society (G15) and many others. People have invested in those projects and now getting highest returns on investments(ROI).

New Islamabad International Airport has been long predicted to be a game changer in Property Market due to its location on verge of motorways which connects it to the whole country. We have concluded nine reasons WHY the surrounding areas near new airport will be a haven for investors as well as a common people.

This New Islamabad International Airport will:

1) Facilitate the whole population of Rawalpindi & Islamabad, KPK (Hazara), Northern Areas, Pothohar Region, Azad Jammu & Kashmir.

The Inspiration, Motive and Values of Nayatel Pakistan

The world is transforming from conventional to                    Logoentrepreneurial activities and practices. From developed to developing countries, the main focus of intelligentsia and states is to promote SMEs and entrepreneurship for the sustainable living of mankind. We being students of Business in developing countries were given examples of successful business leaders like Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Richard Branson, etc. These successful business icons belong to highly educated, technologically- oriented and disciplined countries, where they had been trained to excel as leaders in their careers.

The courses which we are taught focus on case studies of companies like Microsoft, Walmart, Amazon, and Google. Most of us do not recognize some of these names because we have never heard of or seen them (i.e. Walmart) in our locality. They are strange and foreign. We do not have access to such highly recognized brands. Very few of us from this part of the world know about the contributions and struggles of Noble Laureate and social entrepreneur Dr. Muhammad Yunus of Grameen Bank.

In societies like Pakistan, we need examples from the same soil to feel empowered and inspired to move forward. We are impressed with contributions from technologists, businessmen and scientists from the West, but feel an unparalleled sense of pride after learning about successful personalities from our own society.

In the quest of searching for success ventures from Pakistan and the challenges faced by those bright minds, I came to know about an entrepreneurial success story in the heart of Pakistan – NayaTel, a rapidly-growing Islamabad-based company of Pakistan. Three friends from the University of Engineering and Technology, Lahore founded a small firm by the name of Micronet in 2001 to provide internet services. Later on, they managed to make an entrance into the more diverse and costly project of providing world class internet services in 2004 by using optic fiber.  “Naya” means “new” which is an Urdu word used by the company to give a familiar, local touch and recognition. It is the only company in Pakistan which is providing internet services, telephone and cable TV with the finest optic fiber technology. They were the first one in South Asia to provide such services by using such technology. Installing optic fiber requires huge capital and workforce, one has to dig all roads over in order to install and spread lines. The main focus was to provide internet services to Corporations, Embassies and households in our nation’s Capital.

Nayatel is now part of Pakistan 100 and Arabia 500’s fastest growing companies with a workforce of more than 700 technical and managerial staff. Until 2009, the net worth of its assets was more than five million US dollars with a growth rate of 1076% and spreading to other cities, too. According to entrepreneurial site “All World Network” (www.allworldlive.com), the company is Pakistan’s second fastest growing company.

CEO of the company Wahaj Siraj stated in an interview, “Our customers are mainly from Embassies and their Consulates in the Capital. The American Ambassador used to get our services for two years and when he was leaving Pakistan, he said our services are better than New York internet service providers.”

 The Marriot Islamabad and adjoining IT Technology Park was devastated by the deadliest attack in 2008, however their professional team and engineers reinstalled the entire system within a record two days’ time.

Let’s view the mission and values of the company which are written in Urdu in the main office building:

To be a role model of trust, set higher standards of quality and add values to the society.”

Truthfulness               Honesty              Mannerism                   Simplicity            Knowledge                 Hard work               Sacrifice

The company’s name is in Urdu which is the national language of Pakistan. The Company’s founders grew up and studied in this land and have earned global recognition.

They haven’t outsourced their services from abroad. Currently, they are on the verge of competing with the world’s # 1 brands like Google and others by launching pure Pakistani email web servers.Their ambitions are very high and with a broad vision and proactive leadership, they will undoubtedly be achieving great feats and milestones.

Centangle’s Amazing Seven

We are in an era of evolution in technology, modes of businesses are changing. These technological changes make people interact with each other across the globe. The era of the internet, blogging and social media has given new dimensions to businesses to reach a larger audience. The world is shifting from conventional business practices to Entrepreneurship. 

Yesterday, I attended a productive workshop by CIPE (Centre of International Private Enterprise) in collaboration with The Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ICCI) on blogging and content writing. It was a privilege to meet young entrepreneurs from Islamabad.  The blogging and content writing session was conducted by famous social media strategist and blogger Hammad Siddiqui. The session was one of the first in Islamabad at this level for social media enthusiasts and bloggers. The use of social media to give a positive image of a society has great impact. You can make a positive as well as negative impression to the world by using such mediums.

After the session by Hammad Siddiqui, we were introduced to local entrepreneurs from our Capital. I was assigned to interview one of the entrepreneurs and publish their story on my personal blog. I met with a very energetic and passionate individual by the name of Mushahid Hussain, who is the co-founder of the company “Centangle.”

The story of this company is very inspiring and interesting. A group of seven friends decided to be entrepreneurs after they refused to work for corporate giants. The idea of running a company was generated in the last semester of their academic year in one of the recognized IT universities in Pakistan i.e. Comsats Institute of Information Technology, Islamabad.  They collectively decided to take a risk in a saturated market like Pakistan, where there is hopelessness for young professionals who mostly try to leave the country and pursue careers abroad.

At the startup, this group of seven friends became divided out of fear of risk-taking – two of them left the group and joined the corporate sector as employees. The remaining five friends collected money and invested in an IT company – “Centangle” . All the finances came from personal savings and families. They started working on different projects, namely IT and mobile application solutions. They marketed their services by using different mediums like social media and blogs. They began operating Facebook pages to reach audiences globally. The most important part of their work is that they were driven by passion and dedication to make the image of the country more positive and peaceful. 

In last few months, they have completed about sixteen projects of different organizations and now they’ve penetrated the market with their courage, belief and risk-taking ability. They are now being approached by different organizations and companies for their innovative IT solutions and services.  They have crossed their break-even point and have entered a profit margin which they are able to equally distribute among the shareholders of the company. Can you imagine a newly formed firm reaping returns in just a few months?

In a matter of four to five months, they now are in a position of hiring new staff due to the heavy burden of their work. Interestingly, the two friends who had left them at the start and wanted to be corporate employees have joined the team once again. However, they are not getting all the perks of the founding members and entrepreneurs of the company.

Now the team of “Centangle” is moving forward fast for their future endeavours. Their aims are very high and objectives are to be recognized as one of the most efficient IT & mobile solutions company in Pakistan and globally. They have wonderful plans for the future youth of Pakistan. They are working on different management systems and IT products related to career guidance of Pakistani students.  

 I wish them luck and outrageous success for their future projects and I believe anything which they do will contribute to this nation and its people. Their ideas will create and generate entrepreneurial and employment opportunities for so many.
