Meet Our President
President, OPEN Tri-State
Our vision for the OPEN Tri-State chapter is simple: To provide Pakistani-American professionals, entrepreneurs, youth and the business community, in the Tri-State area, an ecosystem of support for business launch and growth.
We want to be the "one stop shop" for supporting the thousands of Pakistani-Americans in our area, whether it is around mentorship for youth, professional development for entrepreneurs and professionals, networking for executive and business-owners, fund-raising for startups, creating links between US and Pakistan businesses, or serving as a network of advisors with a wide range of skills and expertise.
To our community, the message is clear: this is your chapter. What you get out of it, is driven largely by your initiative in reaching out for support. Let's grow together.
