      No one can deny the services that Mr. Ifran is offering – and also we really see a great potential in his new company. Our current listing emphasizes on the year 2013.

    • Grammar Police

      He should not be. He has corrupted the image of Pakistan by running different companies on the side after selling Game View to the Japanese gaming company. Recently he has re-bought the company for free, because Irfan ran the company to the ground after selling it. Really sad.

    • Honestly the list has been filtered out
      based on their entrepreneurship abilities – boundaries don’t matter when you
      have the real talent. :) And we really know some of the personalities do not
      belong to Lahore. Pakistan first!

  1. Tahir Mansoor Khan

    Very Nice List. But why majority from Lahore only? Author missed out many other Inspirational entrepreneurs from other Cities of Pakistan.

  2. Faizan

    Irfan Haider Awan should also be part of this list, Since he bring alot of new technologies to Pakistan including World Largest B2B Platform for SME’s of Pakistan. He have also taken alot of other initiatives to prosper economy of Pakistan

Please give complete research before publishing such lists.
