Business Incubation

The Business incubation process started in around early quarter of 2005, when internet connectivity was for the first time started in Hunza valley. The focus remained on capacity building of local entrepreneurs through trainings in computer, internet, web designing, and business management.

The project motivated the entrepreneurs to use internet to access wide network of customers and clientele especially from the tourism perspective. According to the assessment carried out in June 2007, an average of 30.51% improvement/growth was recorded in incubated businesses. This includes 36.79% improvement in tourism industry, 30.58% in trade and commerce and 24.17% in service industry.
