ABOUT DICE FOUNDATION:

For any advanced nation, the key to success is the right combination of talent, education and a mindset of innovation and creativity that revolutionizes the whole world.

Innovation has been a key ingredient behind success of all developed nations. Through innovation, countries have brought sustained prosperity to their people.

Pakistan has brilliant minds – what is missing is a conducive environment – culture of innovation and indigenous products is lacking.

We at DICE truly believe that given the right environment, there is no reason why Pakistan can not become an advanced and prosperous nation in the world in our lifetime! With all its challenges and roadblocks, there is no better time to invest in the future of a thriving and prosperous Pakistan than now.

By creating a culture of innovation in Pakistan, DICE is trying to bring change to the national mindset so that next Google, autonomous cars, state of art medical devices, textile and agriculture products can come from Pakistan.

DICE has been pursuing this mission with the support of its key partners in academia, industry and government institutions. For helping the different areas, DICE has created focused innovation platforms like Automotive, Textile, Health, IT, Energy & Water, Agriculture and Creative Art & Media.

Several mega innovation events takes place each year in Pakistan, highlighting new innovations and technologies, sharing the knowledge and collaborating to create new products that are a key to development of the country. DICE Foundation has mobilized young innovators and entrepreneurs all over Pakistan who come together to showcase their ideas and products to industry and to potential investors to get funding. Many projects have been funded on the spot and are now going through development process through DICE Sharks initiative.

WHY THIS CAMPAIGN? :

Being a non-profit 501 c (3) organization, DICE Foundation has been funded from personal savings over the last 11 years. Additional funds are needed to support substantial growth in DICE activities across various sectors in Pakistan.

We are running this campaign to gain support of people like you who feel that there is untapped talent in Pakistan that could be self-sufficient and thriving if given a little help. Specific need for funds generated from this campaign is for events that will be taking place in Pakistan in October 2018. For the tasks that are at hand, the goal for this campaign is to raise atleast $30,000.

Please join us if you have the desire to see the change Pakistan needs so much.  Your donation will be helping Pakistan’s young minds and in turn, move the needle towards sustained prosperity for a progressive Pakistan.

With our 100% donation policy, every dollar of your donation will be used for the benefit of raising the prize money for unique and innovative projects across DICE Mega Event and focus areas. Every donation you make will have a ripple effect far beyond the individual program and participation by bringing the youth of Pakistan to help gain the resources and the confidence to move ahead with their head held up high.
