Fret not because after reading this article till the end, you will not only know him closely but will also get inspired by him. Don’t believe it? Read on.
Who really is Zain Ashraf?
Zain Ashraf is the brains behind the budding new venture in Pakistan, called SeedOut. He graduated from the University of Miami, and headed back to Pakistan to materialize his plans of eradicating poverty. His aim was to introduce the local masses with the incredible idea of crowdfunding.
Zain basically holds a degree in entrepreneurship, which has led him to create various platforms where humanitarian causes and entrepreneurship go hand in hand. From heading the operations of the Super Asia Group, to launching the world renown fast-food joint ‘Hardees’ in Pakistan; this lad has done it all! Inspired already? Well, there are a lot more surprises to come.
Zain’s Inspirational Journey
Zain’s journey is nothing short of inspirational. He has worked with innumerable entrepreneurs and representatives from all over the world, and has always managed to come up with unique entrepreneurial ideas and initiatives. He is the man behind iVoke, a digital agency in Pakistan, which deals in providing result oriented marketing solutions to other agencies.
Zain did not stop there. He followed his heart (and his mind) to take a step towards developing the first ever Online Cloud Accounting App – Eccountant in Pakistan. Eccountant has helped multiple nascent startups and companies in managing their financial dilemmas.
How SeedOut Came into Existence?
The begging culture has only worsened in the past few years, which has indirectly affected the country’s economy, and the poverty line has been touching new lows every single day.
Zain Ashraf dreamed of alleviating the poverty conditions of our country. This man really is a go-getter, and ultimately achieved his goal by bringing the idea of crowdfunding to the table.
The idea came into existence with the emergence of SeedOut. It is a non-profit organization that aims to dismantle the culture of beggary from its roots. SeedOut confirms with the Islamic ideology of banking, and provides interest-free micro financing loans to upcoming entrepreneurs through a crowdfunding platform. Zain and his team believe in providing viable solutions to kick start and help the growth of budding enterprises in Pakistan. This endeavor has been successful in enabling over 100 startups, and also has a contribution in funding the education of hundreds of children!
With a dream to transform millions of lives, Seed Out has also started a new journey through a renowned international crowdfunding platform “Global Giving” to raise funds. Through Global Giving, Seed Out wishes to empower an entire village of Kohlo Wala by creating 50 self-sufficient female entrepreneurs in the village who are currently living in extreme poverty.

Zain Ashraf is a rising influential figure and a force to be reckoned with. His contributions, as a philanthropist, have paved the way for other such personalities to follow suit. There are rare people in our country who are actually concerned about the betterment of their homeland, Zain is one of them. He preferred staying and working in Pakistan, rather flourishing his career abroad.
After knowing about all his ventures and success, my hope in humanity is revived. As long as people like Zain Ashraf tread on this soil, nothing can stop us from making Pakistan great again!
