About OPEN Global
The Organization of Pakistani Entrepreneurs (OPEN) Global is the world’s premier entrepreneur network. Founded in 1998 in Boston, OPEN has grown to eleven chapters in some of the world’s most dynamic hubs of entrepreneurship — in the U.S., U.K., and Pakistan. OPEN’s membership boasts leading entrepreneurs, business leaders, and corporate professionals. OPEN chapters host dozens of networking, knowledge-sharing, and mentoring events every month. OPEN Global ensures coordination across chapters and drives global initiatives and growth through the launch of new chapters. The non-profit organization is registered in Massachusetts and is governed by an independent Board of Directors and an elected President. OPEN provides a platform for entrepreneurs and professionals to connect, network, collaborate, mentor, and support each other, helping countless in their entrepreneurial journeys. Our members include professionals, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, scientists, social leaders, academics, and students.
I'm excited and privileged to lead OPEN Global as President for the 2024-2025 term. With 13+ chapters already established and growing worldwide, we're the leading organization for Pakistani and Pakistani-hyphenated professionals and friends of Pakistan, serving as a magnet for both entrepreneurs and established businesses.
Each year, we organize 100+ in-person and virtual events, delivering advisory and mentorship to numerous startups and established businesses. We also provide a platform for entrepreneurs and professionals to connect, opening new doors for growth, expansion, and wealth creation.
