TECH: News association formed in IT domain to polish youth 

ISLAMABAD: (APP) Pakistan's Information Technology (IT) sector has got new industry association called TECH which has been formed to fill substantial gap between industry and academia .

Over 10,000 IT graduates enter job market every year yet IT companies still struggle to find suitable talent. The reason is lack of a cohesive training and mentoring plan to enable these graduates to hit the ground running.

Till date, TECH has not only reached every university possible but also mentored a number of startups, partnered up strategically with other associations and programmes, provided training & workshops , arranged technology meet-ups and participated in exhibitions and events.

Working at policy level while making efforts to address grassroots is what makes TECH Pakistan unique in its mission.

The notable members of TECH 's advisory board include Mir Muhammad Ali Khan, President TECH Pakistan, Salim Ghauri Qaiser Abbas, Ashraf Chaudhary, Fasieh Mehta and Nadeem Malik.

In his comments on Monday, Chairman TECH Pakistan, Masroor said IT sector of Pakistan is emerging to be a dynamic world where people need to change themselves with changing trends in technology.
