S.A. Hasnain, CEO of Aero-car, is an amazing guy. APICTA gave me the opportunity to get to know him better – and I have come to a decision. I need to arrange a P@SHA get-together where Hasnain must share his story. He is an ex-Air Force guy who is an absolutely brilliant engineer. He has created some of the best and most innovative engineering products – solutions that address existing problems that are being faced by Pakistan and the world. But all this is something you absolutely must hear from him.
At APICTA Hasnain was calm as our mentors made him revamp his presentation to give it an APICTA-fit. He worked hard, rehearsed and even put on a suit (much as he would have preferred to present in the red t-shirt he was wearing).
Hasnain’s products are developed with one aim in mind – inclusion. His ATMs alongwith their software, are created to address the needs of the unbanked sector in Pakistan and the region. They are inexpensive, rugged and open to abuse by heat and dust and other such conditions. Their impact on the developing world is something that cannot be questioned. So it is not surprising that Aerocar won the Merit Award in the E-Inclusion & E-Community category at APICTA. Congratulations Hasnain. Well deserved.
