Here’s Why You HAVE To Attend SPARK’17, IBA’s Upcoming Entrepreneurship Competition

For anyone who’s on the road to becoming an entrepreneur (or if you really fancy the idea), listen up!

Via Tenor

IBA’s Entrepreneurship Society is bringing a two-day event – an Entrepreneurship Competition – on the 24th and 25th of November. It’s called SPARK, and we’re going to give you all the reasons why you should attend the event:

1. They have partnered with the School of Leadership.

At SPARK, it isn’t going to be the usual scene with the same old boring speaker saying the same old boring stuff. Instead, they’ve handpicked the coolest and most interactive trainers in the country like Asma Mustafa to ensure that students don’t end up dozing off.

2. They’ve also partnered with The Nest i/o

The Nest i/o is a hub for startups, and a lot of its speakers are attending to help the participants with product development. This is the ultimate goals opportunity for everyone as you’ll get a chance to interact and network with the finest minds in town. And who knows, you might just score an internship as well?


Yeah, you read that right. Mr. Raza Matin, the Marketing Consultant for Google Pakistan will be training students on how to sell, in one of the rounds of the event. The round, by the way, is called Bechde!, and tbh, I guess we’re already sold!

4. It’s gonna help you become more confident, so it’s time to say goodbye to your old shy self!

We’re sure you’ve wanted to go up in front of an audience and be the star at some point in your life, but then sometimes, we’re just too shy to do that. Well,  SPARK’17 is going to change that for sure. They’ve called experts to teach you how to go up on stage in front of a judge’s panel and audience and pitch your ideas like a pro!

5. The Entrepreneurial Experience

SPARK will surely bring out the entrepreneur in you! In fact, it will make you go crazy with enthusiasm and then make you wonder, “Why do people want to do jobs in the first place? I am going to start my business tomorrow!’”

6. You’ll be given a chance to create your own product!

Oh yes, and not just that, you’ll be given a chance to sell it as well. This is totally your chance to make your dream come to so put your creative hat on and start thinking about the next big thing!

10. The name SPARK’17

Sources tell us that Team Spark is a big fan of the hit-TV series The Flash and that’s where they got the inspiration for this fast-paced, super invigorating experience. Now that you think of it the logo does look familiar…

11. The Beach Party!

After 2 days of hardcore learning, experiencing and running around at SPARK’17 you get to relax at the beach with your friends and let all that ~negative~ energy from CIE and university exam stress out.

12. The Gorgeous IBA Campus

We think by this time we already have established that the IBA campus is a total piece of art. The architecture is unique and unlike any other structures you’ve seen in Karachi. It’s the perfect place to give students their space to work in teams, jog their creativity and to make their experience at SPARK’17 even richer.
