Pitching En Route: Careem Partners with Idea Croron Ka

Careem and Idea Croron Ka partner to make sure that your idea does not go unheard.

After UberPITCH made it to Pakistan in Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad, Careem announced its collaboration with Pakistan’s premier business reality show – Idea Croron Ka, brainchild of Nabeel A. Qadeer.

How does it work?

Currently only available for those in Lahore, the service can be used by selecting ‘ICK’ car type to have a potential investor accompany you in-ride.

The presenter has exactly 8 minutes to pitch and the top ideas that will be selected get a chance to be featured on Neo TV’s business reality show Idea Croron Ka!

The next season of the TV show is starting October 2017 and this is surely a good strategy to get the right kind of hype.
