Team Ammi, Green Thumbs Take Top Place at Pakathon 2015
Teams from four countries presented their innovative startup ideas to a global audience of mentors, judges and interested observers at Toronto’s Aga Khan Museum, as part of Pakathon’s Global Finals on November 8.
A day of inspiration, culture and innovation, featuring actor Ali Kazmi as host, the event showcased 11 top-performing teams, all of whom were finalists in their respective home cities from October’s local hackathon events.
Two winning teams were announced–one from within Pakistan and another from among Pakathon’s global chapter cities, which include Boston, New York, Toronto, Melbourne, Washington DC and Chicago. After careful deliberation, judges selected NUST’s Green Thumbs from Islamabad as their Pakistani selection and Ammi from Toronto as Pakathon’s global winning team.
