The Foundation at LUMS Center for Entrepreneurship is incubating 5 teams and accelerating 3 teams in the current batch. They were all diligently scouted from all over Pakistan either from various competitive platforms that bring entrepreneurs and innovators together or shortlisted from direct applicants to the center. All shortlisted teams went through a rigorous 2-part evaluation process by an independent Foundation Council of prominent and successful entrepreneurs, businessmen and innovators. Half the council evaluated all applicants on entrepreneurial competencies without regard to the business model. The other half evaluated the business models for being sustainable, high-growth and/or high-impact along 8 different dimensions. The highest scoring teams were inducted into The Foundation program at the nation’s most prestigious institution.
