Global Grad Show was created to open the field of creativity and innovation to participants from all places. Every exhibit is represented by one of its creators and visitors are encouraged to ask them about their work.
Here’s what Sarmad said while announcing his achievement:
Getting selected for Global Grad show and being the first Pakistani who is selected for Global Grad Enterprenuership Bootcamp was a proud moment for me because I got the chance to represent my Pakistan as a product designer on an international platform for the very first time.
As an industrial design graduate,I always wanted to do something big for my country and its people and through this opportunity I feel I m on the right path to achieve my goals and opening the doors for future designers to bring their ideas on bigger platforms. This is my dream come true situation when I am presenting my idea as an enterprenuer in front of top leading investors .
