“Our rule as a startup was that if ten people are doing something then we shouldn’t be the 11th. We’re going to do something that will be unique”, says Khurram Kalimi, the COO and Co-founder of the digital transformation startup, VinnCorp.
Khurram Gulistan, and Khurram Kalimi, the Co-founders of VinnCorp, started as batch-mates from the National University of Computer and Emerging Sciences (FAST), a Pakistani University, and have more than ten years’ worth of experience working in some of the biggest global tech companies the likes of Microsoft, Oracle, Salesforce and VMware.
For Gulistan and Kalimi, a comfortable job has never been the goal. They have always aspired to be unique and to bring something new to the table. VinnCorp was founded on this very vision as it started off as the first political campaign management system in Pakistan. VinnCorp works towards building products that help solve challenges in modern-day politics and commerce.
VinnCorp has worked and produced a diverse set of operating systems. SOCOL, VinnCorp’s political campaign solution is a first-of-its-kind voter relationship management system, which was highly publicized in digital and print media. SOCOL also brought the firm the ITCN Tech Prize in 2019.
