At the end of the event the top three teams were presented with prestigious awards; among which members of the winning team were specially gifted tablets by the CEO of Viper Technology, Mr. Khushnood Aftab. Furthermore, they were also particularly selected and given an opportunity of incubation under the mentorship of our CEO, Ms. Huda Garib, as well the CEO of Tech Pakistan, Mr. Kanwal Masroor, as a means of allowing them to build on their idea further, and eventually transforming it into a reality.
