Abstract

Asad Jamal, a Pakistani born entrepreneur and founder of ePlanet Ventures, a technology based fund, is considering whether he wants his firm to be one of the first entrants in the largely untapped market of Pakistan. The case describes the opportunities and risks of doing so, leaving the reader to decide what makes the most sense for ePlanet. This case highlights Pakistan’s explosive growth during the tenure of General Musharraf from 1999-2007, and the power of a diaspora in facilitating entrepreneurship. This case is part of the MIT Sloan free case collection (visit www.thecasecentre.org/mitsloanfreecases for more information on the collection).
