Avolv is Pakistan's first venture builder – startup incubator – and a commercialisation consultancy. Avolv began as an idea several years ago, at a time when venture builders and incubators were unheard of, and thus evolved with time. Eventually, years after, when incubators, accelerators and venture builders are commonplace - at least in the western hemisphere - Avolv is now bringing to life companies driven by innovation. Today, Avolv is Pakistan's first venture builder and commercialisation consultancy. The foundry of innovation – and disruption – this side of the Indian Ocean, Avolv strives to build companies that create value and bring about innovation in not only technology but other industries. Avolv is best described as a venture builder, a mashup of a startup incubator and a startup incubator, combined with, where need be, performing the roles of an angel and even a VC. Added to that, Avolv is also a commercialization consultancy.
Pakistan is home to several succesful and high profile accelerators – mistakenly referred to as incubators – such as Plan9 and the PSEB Incubator. Avolv's Startupfactory is not an accelerator but more of an incubator. Rather than explain it in detail, we'll simply point you towards this amazing Inc article – Accelerator vs. Incubator: What’s the Difference?.
