The Silicon Valley Pakistani community is a highly talented and educated bunch indeed. From hardware, software, IT expertise to geniuses in Law and Business. We have it all, right here in the San Francisco Bay Area. As individuals we appear to be doing great for ourselves and our families.

However, can we leverage our respective brains to benefit our local community and the greater Pakistani Diaspora?

We have come a long way; this SV-PAK group is one of kind. No other region has such a Pakistani group. This group is a wonderful initiative, has tremendous potential to serve Pakistani’s worldwide.

So what’s next? Are we fated to remain a mere online e-group? Can we move this e-group from being just a discussion forum to a forum which produces results? From philanthropic activities to mentoring and entrepreneurial activities—the skies the limit. So are you ready to take the ultimate dive, plunging into the world of immense opportunity? You could take the plunge on your own, however if we take it together as a team the rewards would be greater, not just for ourselves but for the entire community and the Pakistani Diaspora in general. Together we can build this e-group into multi-faceted organization, which will serve us both economically and socially. From providing high quality technical consulting services to fortune 500 firms, to developing cutting-edge technologies of the future.

What do you think?
