Dr Qasim Sheikh floats the idea of Innopedia
In his address to the conference participants, Dr. Qasim Sheikh of ICT R&D defined innovation as the removal of constraining factors from the value chain. He cited many examples and said IBA is in a unique position to help students sharpen their innovative skills. He expressed his desire to have an innopedia for Pakistan, where young Pakistanis could contribute their innovate ideas and knowledge in order to identify bottlenecks in the current value chains. Once such a repository gains a critical mass it would prove to be a very valuable resource for young Pakistani innovators and entrepreneurs.
