Highlights & Photos from IPN LaunchPad in Santa Clara


In early November, IPN LaunchPad, a weekend packed with energy and inspiration, was held at the Hyatt Regency in Santa Clara, California.

After a rigorous application process, 100 founders and 50 investors were selected to attend the event from all over the US and across the world. Nearly 70% of the selected investors were members of the Ismaili Chamber!

Sixty six companies in attendance represented a variety of industries including communications and networking, e-commerce and consumer goods, career and education, enterprise solutions, healthcare, beauty and fitness, marketing and financial solutions, and travel and hospitality.

Leaders from a variety of industries provided insights about their respective fields and there were plenty of opportunities for networking.

Saba Karim, a Founder from Australia, came to LaunchPad to obtain monetary support for his startup, but instead, left with something priceless.

“From an experienced group of successful entrepreneurs, mentors, businessmen and women, I received brilliant advice, amazing guidance and enormous amounts of positive encouragement. To me, that itself is worth its weight in gold,” he said.“I can’t imagine any other community, or even a business conference, where anyone gives and receives this much support to strangers. So thank you for truly making me rich.”
