The Catalyst GIK Incubator

Home > The Catalyst GIK Incubator

To create an atmosphere for nurturing ideas into commercialized products, GIK University in partnership with the provincial Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, has set up a state-of-the-art Incubator facility. The Incubator allows budding entrepreneurs access to the latest technology equipment, machinery and research know-how necessary to facilitate product design and commercialization. Top teams are selected from business plan competitions held regularly throughout the year.

The Catalyst GIK Incubator is a technology incubator and the only residential   Incubator in Pakistan, where start-ups live on the campus free of cost and spend most of their time building the next big thing. Funded and supported by Directorate of Science and Technology,  Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
