Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) has announced Prosperity Cup 2016 to encourage young men and women from Gilgit-Baltistan and Chitral (GBC) to start their own business. The Prosperity Cup applicants will be inducted through an incubation process called Accelerate Prosperity. The project is being implemented through Aga Khan Rural Support Program (AKRSP) in association with The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE) Islamabad chapter. The competition will kickstart startup activities in Gilgit-Baltistan and Chitral, which is very much the need of the hour.
The incubation process will start on November 15, 2016, which is also the deadline to submit a business idea. An application form has been made available on the official website that can be filled before the deadline. This would be the first time such a contest is being held in the region.
