Daftarkhwan Collabs With PAF To Launch Daftarkhwan Alpha

In collaboration with Aviation City Pakistan, a project spearheaded by the Pakistan Air Force, Daftarkhwan is launching its newest coworking space, Alpha, in the National Aerospace Science and Technology Park (NASTP).

Alpha opened its doors in December 2022. Alpha, located in the Old Islamabad International Airport, offers a unique opportunity for forward-thinking technology companies to engage with the innovation ecosystem focused on the aerospace, IT, and cyber technology domains.

In addition to Alpha, NASTP is home to Pakistan’s first National Incubation Center, which has an aerospace vertical and a specialised focus on deep tech and is funded by Ignite, a subsidiary of the Ministry of Information Technology.

Daftarkhwan Alpha has a capacity of 450+ members and features Daftarkhwan’s signature design and vibrant workspaces, as well as amenities like military-grade security, secure parking, a 10,000-square-foot cafe, and a podcast room.

In addition, an on-site daycare facility, banking centres, ATMs, and one-stop legal and regulatory support services are scheduled to open in January.

“A central theme of NASTP’s vision is to most effectively engage the private sector in creating a productive and sustainable innovation ecosystem in Pakistan,” says Dr. Tauseef ur Rehman, CTO of ACPPL.

“In this pursuit, we are proud to partner with team Daftarkhwan, which not only provides the best office space experience but also assists us in curating a tech enterprise community most relevant to the Park’s focus areas of aerospace, IT, and cyber technologies,” he added.

Daftarkhwan has expanded to eight locations across the country, with strongholds in Lahore, Islamabad, and Rawalpindi. Daftarkhwan currently has a total area of 170,000+ square feet and a member capacity of 3,000+ people from over 200+ companies ranging from technology and artificial intelligence to health and education.

Daftarkhwan has firmly established itself as the primary co-working space for both local and international corporations, with notable members including Daraz, Tintash, Careem, Red Bull, Starzplay, and many others.

“NASTP symbolises the seriousness of purpose and focus of the country’s most innovative public sector institution in helping foster and scale Pakistan’s technology sector,” said Saad Idrees, CEO and Co-founder of Daftarkhwan. This is a watershed moment. “Some of the most cutting-edge technological breakthroughs have come from collaborations between the public and private sectors.”

“With NASTP, we have the opportunity to help reinvent Pakistan’s hardware and software industries.” “Daftarkhwan is thrilled to be a part of this historic initiative,” he added.

Daftarkhwan received a seed investment from Emerging Market Property Group earlier this year (EMPG). EMPG is a technology company that dominates the region’s classifieds industry. EMPG owns and operates Zameen.com, Zameen Developments, and OLX in Pakistan.
