Groomify: A Start-Up Made by 22-Year-Old Founder Got Acquired
In the age of technological revolution, people around the world are coming up with innovative ideas and strategies. Pakistan is no exception, and its start-up culture is thriving, providing job opportunities and supporting the country’s economy. Groomify, a start-up founded by Syed Muhammad Hassan Askari, is one example of a Pakistani start-up that is making a difference. Groomify aims to enhance the productivity of brands and businesses by improving their culture. The vision of CEO Hassan Askari is to enhance brand growth by driving great culture in companies. Besides this, Groomify produces a well-groomed, skilled, and developed human resource.
The 22-year-old Askari had the dream of creating an impact in Pakistan. He initially built a start-up around barbers in which you could get a barber at your doorstep through technology, but that start-up was not creating the impact he desired. So, he came up with the idea of changing the way organizations operate.
Groomify was the first start-up in Pakistan launched by the Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry with the collaboration of Connected Pakistan. Aizaz Muhammad, the convener of ICCI, and Syed Arsalan Ali Shah, the founder, and CEO of Connected Pakistan, appreciated the start-up on its launch and expressed that it will be a great initiative to take part in the community’s betterment.
The CEO of Groomify Hassan Askari has exclaimed that Plan 9, Arfa Kareem Software Technology Park, provides a better atmosphere for networking, which is the core need of every start-up to grow. Dr. Umar Saif, the federal minister for Information Technology has been lucky to prove himself that his initiative of Plan 9 is still promoting the start-up culture in Pakistan and will be doing this in future as well.
