We are the second boss,
I learnt a lot from you guys, more than just the knowledge about the simulation.☺️ You are the most efficient team members I’ve ever worked with!🧡🧡🧡
有幾週老師讓每個人都當leader，我發現自己如果是主管或老闆的話，可能是支援型的那種，會放任有好主意的人去做，只要make sense. 也不是沒意見，只是比較傾向於向更懂的人學習which means @zaitunese

"We’ve all done things we aren’t proud of. I understand that. I know nobody’s perfect but how do you live with it? How do you get up every morning and face the world knowing you could’ve done better, that you should’ve done better. Is sorry enough? Can an apology actually heal our wounds? Ease our pain? Can it undone the hurt we’ve caused?"
Hello, meet Safa: beautiful, smart and funny - she’s a triple threat 💣💣💣 After this shoot, we had breakfast at LUMS and Zoha and I pretended we were her personal assistants because we literally had just gotten out of bed and were with this glam queen lol so that was our coping mechanism. We might have overdone it but taking jokes too far is part of our personality at this point. Also, on the location, Zoha and I found this place without even trying and I’m so glad we did otherwise we would have done this at an ugly bus stop we tried to convince ourselves would work...the yellow stripes are a mood though.

Lathika S. Pai, the Country Head of Microsoft for Startups Eastern Europe (MENA & SAARC region) visited the NIC Facility alongside her team on December 11th.
The team spent the better part of their day interacting with some of the best tech start-ups incubated with NIC in the current cohort. These included Home Innovation, RADA Tech, Careerz360 and PayCard.
Lathika offered them Microsoft's help to facilitate and further their businesses. She gave each of them valuable advice after listening to their journeys. The advice centered on how Microsoft can collaborate with the start-ups in the future.
Lathika informed the team of the Indian counterparts as well. This was in great depth and offered important insights and connections outside of Pakistan.
Here at NIC we believe not just in in-house collaboration but global incorporation as well, and every possibly opportunity is thus provided.

One of the questions we get asked a lot is - 𝗛𝗼𝘄 𝗱𝗼 𝗜 𝗯𝘂𝗶𝗹𝗱 𝗮𝗻 𝗲𝗳𝗳𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗶𝘃𝗲 '𝗻𝗲𝘁𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗸'? 🕴
This is a common concern for undergrads,Grad students & professionals - we are also just learning but here is what we have figured out having attended a lot of networking events! 🐣
Sabh say pehlay tu let go off these khayalaat : .
🤦🏻♂️Networking is so shallow, you are approaching someone only to benefit from them
🙍🏻♀️I don’t know what to say to someone - I mean what could I possibly have anything valuable to say to XYZ
🤦🏻♀️I cant connect with people like that, I like to have more meaningful interactions (our personal favorite 🤯)
While all these are valid (to some extent only) networking is so much more than just reaching out & saying hi hello to someone 👣
Just because aapnay salam karkay apna bio data bata dia,doesn’t mean the person is part of your 'network' now.They'd probably forget you in the next 5 minutes 🤷🏻♀️
So the key to building an effective networking is👇
𝐎𝐟𝐟𝐞𝐫 𝐯𝐚𝐥𝐮𝐞 𝐛𝐞𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐚𝐬𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐯𝐚𝐥𝐮𝐞!
Before reaching out to someone for your benefit,see how can you add value to them.This may seem complicated,but it isn't;
𝗤: How can you add value to some top notch manager/CEO ?
𝗔𝗻𝘀: Do your research,check out latest news about them,identify your sellable skill(s),can you offer it for free? Do you have a fresh perspective on something that might be of interest to them? .
🕴Just a little bit of brainstorming before or even in the first half hour of a networking session can help you connect & strike quality conversations. .
Our personal litmus test - if you can hold XYZ person's attention for more than 5 minutes,you have established a (passive) contact.
Yani next time agar milain gay tu shayad pehchan lain gay apko 🕺
Now that’s the first step - next step is to 'activate' this contact & that we'd talk about in our next post!
Stay tuned! 🧞♀️

One of NIC's most prominent start-ups Vceela, conducted 2 training sessions on the 10th and 11th of December for home based women artisans.
The aim of these trainings was to give a voice to home based women artisans who expressed a strong desire to learn and grow and be able to develop their own home-economy and well-being of their family. Most importantly, to instill and foster in them a sense of financial independence.
The trainings included informing them of the basic business rules, financial management support, how to develop products, costing and pricing of products, quality control mechanisms for export market standards, management skills, creating and managing online shops and packing and logistics.
Vceela has stood true to a lot of NIC's beliefs and we are proud to be the incubator for such a progressive start-up.
