PESHAWAR -- Nestle, Pakistan has come on board as official sponsor of the Digital Youth Summit 2015 a leading tech conference and start-up expo co-organized by the Information Technology Board of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Peshawar 2.0 and the World Bank.

The event will bring to Peshawar on May 7 to 9, tech entrepreneurs and business experts from Pakistan and all over the world.

Participants will discuss, for three days, various aspects of tech entrepreneurship, innovation and freelancing.

The event which targets tech entrepreneurs, policy makers and e-lancers, will also include an Expo open to the general public allowing a broader audience to interact with start-ups from Pakistan, and join free breakout sessions to learn about coding, freelancing, developing apps, using social media for marketing and much more.

"Nestle believes in both the potential that the dynamism of youth offers and the importance of harnessing digital resources. The Digital Youth Summit will help channel both and that is why we have decided to work once again with the KP IT Board, Peshawar 2.0 and the World Bank", said Magdi Batato, Managing Director of Nestle.

"Companies are now part of a dynamic ecosystem. Products alone dont guarantee competitive advantage anymore; you have to deliver, with the help of technological advances, superior services and experiences to the customer and at the same time drive better operational productivity internally."

The Digital Acceleration team of Nestle, Pakistan will conduct breakout sessions on social media marketing and will sponsor a special session on Angel Investment for selected business leaders, to encourage more representatives of the private sector to support the youth of our country in their entrepreneurial endeavors.

"We are honoured to count upon the support of a company like Nestle," declared Farah Hamid Khan, Secretary ST and IT and Managing Director KP IT Board.

"The efforts of the Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Peshawar 2.0 and the World Bank to leverage technology for income generating opportunities for youth will be more effective with the support of a partner like Nestle; their participation is an example of what the private sector can do for social development, producing tech savvy youth and developing KP into an IT hub" she added.
