Samsung Electronics Pak in collaboration with LUMS aims to support and empower social start-ups contributing towards achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The official MoU signing ceremony for the collaboration held at the National Incubation Centre Lahore (NICL) where Managing Director Samsung Electronics Pakistan Mr. Roy Chang and Vice Chancellor LUMS Dr. Arshad Ahmad were signed.
Mr. Roy Chang speaking on the occasion said “Everything we design and create at Samsung, anticipates human behaviour and solves a problem, clearly. At every touch-point, consumers feel that an experience is built around them, not the other way round. Samsung Pak is determined in its quest for innovation that inspires meaningful human progress and that’s the culture we want to promote through this initiative to contribute towards a more innovation driven economy and solving key local challenges identified by the United Nations.”
Dr. Arshad Ahmad addressing the gathering said, “For a company like Samsung Pak to choose LUMS to collaborate with is a great privilege and we are very grateful for this. Entrepreneurship is a way of thinking and that thinking is fueled by fusion across disciplines. The agenda we have for the next five years is to fuse together other disciplines with science and engineering and we call that a no-borders agenda, and partnership with industry is critical to make this successful. We can’t solve any of Pakistan’s challenges or problems if we don’t work together.”
