Hosted by Katalyst Labs, +92Disrupt brought together a mix of expert panels, keynote sessions, relevant workshops, competitive hackathons, and fireside chats with the most notable stakeholders in the start-up ecosystem of Pakistan. Najam’s keynote challenged the participants to think of their “responsibility to society” when they “disrupt.” Najam set the tone for the event by speaking about the “real” challenges and responsibilities of Pakistan’s growing tech startup ecosystem, emphasizing that Pakistan is being shaped by two restless and volatile forces: the youth of Pakistan and its climate. He also argued that if a technological and economic ecosystem is not made better by disruptive innovation, it’s just destruction. “Remember, disruption is not a game, it is a responsibility,” Najam said in closing.
