Dastawezat seeks to solve a problem that perhaps every school boy or girl who are about to graduate goes through. Students these days have limited time on their hands and are not able to apply to all universities simply because of the hassle of doing so.
For example, if a student wants to apply for LUMS as well as NUST the same time, he would choose between one because of lot of time will be wasted in filling the forms as well as much more money will be lost in form of travelling, courier charges and other issues. And all this is happening at a time when he is preparing for his A-level or Board exams. So he’s already stressed out and the forms are not helping him either.
Many students miss college admission deadlines every year simply because they were too busy in their studies or they didn’t know that these admissions were open.
With Dastawezat, he can easily apply to all the universities/workshops/internships/scholarships while staying at home. He is just supposed to email or WhatsApp the documents’ photos and send the fees via Easypaisa. The rest will be taken care of by Dastawezat’s team. Isn’t that great?
With 17-19 year olds as its target market, Dastawezat can become a lucrative advertising potential for universities across Pakistan. Universities can now advertise their admission openings on Dastawezat’s website, which can act as a central platform for students who are seeking information about university admissions.
The educational startup scene is fast getting on track in Pakistan and with education as one of the leading money-makers in the country, we should expect to see more services like Dastawezat in the near future.
Of the leading startups in India who raised millions of dollars in investment last year, many were ed-tech startups. So watch out Pakistanis, ed-tech might soon be the new buzzword in town.
