Today marks the first day of Lean Startup Machine, the weekend hackathon, taking place at the SAIF Innovation Center in Lahore, Pakistan. “It is so exciting to see a buzz of activity around Startups and entrepreneurial ventures. It’s just what needed to happen in Pakistan,” writes an excited Pakistani entrepreneur on her blog.
Pitches will take place at 6 p.m., teams will form at 7:30, and the real work starts at 9 p.m. Hashtag #LSMPakistan. LSM’s Trevor Owens will be liveblogging the event. “We have a crazy amount of startup founders signed-up for the event,” he writes.
