Pakistan’s Digital Rights Foundation among Forbes’ top 10 entrepreneurs


Pakistan’s Digital Rights Foundation on Monday was named as one of the Forbes’ top 10 entrepreneurs who won accolades at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York last week.

The foundation, listed on no. 3, was described as “an advocacy organisation based in Pakistan that helps women escape honor killings, online violence and to fix negative online images of them.”

In March, nine Pakistanis made it to Forbes Asia’s 30 Under 30. The 2018 list features 30 game changers, young innovators and disruptors across 10 categories “who are re-inventing industries and driving change” across the continent.

The United Nations kicked off its 73rd General Assembly session earlier this week with the world’s most prominent leaders attending the summit in New York.

Senior diplomats and experts seek to move the needle on some critical subjects of international relevance. The crises in Syria and Palestine, Rohingya, free trade, gender inequality, humanitarian relief and non-proliferation of nuclear weapons remained the major points of contention.
