TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF?
I’ve a by birth passion and never ending interest in technology & sofware development. After giving the 9th class exams, I noticed that EdTech sector in Pakistan has not grown to it’s potential. Then I decided to come into this sector and started Smadent in 10th July, 2019.
I started publishing things that can teach and consult students about different courses, dipomas and competitive exams in pakistan. I also provided exam results, date sheets, pairing schemes, notes, textbooks, and other study resources in an interactive and easy-to-use layout.
And we started getting success, now we’ve won many awards listed on our site(https://www.smadent.com/about). We’ve gotton millions of users since the day.
We’ve many Educational Apps published on Google Play Store(https://play.google.com/store/apps/dev?id=8369507939162053473).
I skipped my formal education after completing my matriculation degree and started to work full-time on my website.
