Who we are?


TechOne (Formerly known as Technology Incubation Centre – TIC NUST) is the first Technology Incubator of Pakistan established in academia in 2005 by Pakistan’s premier university NUST as a means to replicate the concept of incubators in Pakistan. TechOne is part of university’s drive to prove itself as a world class learning centre and is amongst many advanced institutions set-up at its over 700 acres state-of-the-art campus.

“If you’re embarking upon a technology based startup and want to maximize your chances of success then TechOne is the place for you.”

We provide a conducive environment for your business with all the necessary office facilities under one roof over an area of 33000 sq. ft. TIC derives its strength from business support services offered to the budding entrepreneurs in a multitude of disciplines.

Please feel free to explore this website or contact us if you find this brief of interest. We always look forward to welcome enthusiastic and innovative entrepreneurs.


With the establishment of the first incubation centre to currently managing the largest one, NUST remains a pioneer in the

entrepreneurial eco system of Pakistan. We started small but have come a long way in terms of instilling a commercial culture in academia. The centre has graduated 80+ startups and they are on the way to success. The startups associated with TechOne have a much higher rate of success in business and we estimate that our incubated firms have altogether created 850 employment opportunities.

The incubation opportunities at TechOne are not limited to NUST alumni only. Since we believe in the power of great teams and innovative minds, thus we seek to nurture talent from all over Pakistan that can contribute towards a “knowledge based” economy. This meritorious approach has brought us many honours; for instance our startups have moved onto some of the world’s best accelerators such as Y-Combinator and HeavyBit. Similarly, some have been acquired by international firms for talent and technology; while altogether they have raised more that $3.5 mn in funding.

AT TechOne, we are committed towards our vision of creating an entrepreneurial ecosystem in Pakistan towards a knowledge economy. I invite all the aspiring tech entrepreneurs to connect with us and make this vision a reality.
