Future Entrepreneurs of Pakistan (FEP)

I am launching a google group to empower Pakistani professionals with Engineering, Science, and Business degrees (BA, BS, MBA, etc) to become entrepreneur and create jobs instead of looking for a job. These Engineers, Scientist, and Businessmen / Businesswomen will be grouped together and/or with Capitalists, and guided by established Industrialists/consultants to start small businesses and enterprises. Above all, it will serve as a hub or incubator and spawning spot to match people with likeminded individuals and to form a cross functional team of entrepreneurs bound by common goal of creating mutually agreed products or services - resulting in new start-ups and joint ventures. Please note this is NOT a spot to list/inquire about employment or other services, it is to create Future Pakistani Entrepreneurs to launch new products and services.

Please visit at : Future Entrepreneurs of Pakistan (FEP) and join.

Here is "potential" project.

Back up batteries used to store power for "Off-grid power" (or UPS) are designed differently than the one used in "Automobiles". The difference is the "thickness" and numbers of plates used. That is, for automobile you need to have "thinner" and "many" plates, where for Solar back up you need "thicker" plates. I would like to propose that a "team" to introduce "solar" batteries in Paksitan market to be used for UPS and "off-grid" power. And (potentially) an "engineer/scientist" can partner up with a "distributor" and "industrialist" to launch a joint venture where they can have “industrialist” manufacture x number of batteries to “team’s” specification. These batteries can then be marketed and sold as a “new” product.
