    [#OneHitWonders] Episode 1 - Welcome to Pakistan (Part 1)

    In Part 1 of Episode 1, we're in conversation with Abhinav Iyer, a Canadian-Indian who was visiting Pakistan for the first time, and his impressions of the country and experiences.

    About "One Hit Wonders" - As we're having conversations with individuals around their Pakistani experience, sometimes we're finding it hard to push them into the existing series or those in the works. Hence, we decided to create a separate, unedited, raw, monthly series for all these "One Hit Wonders" that shine a different light on Pakistan.

    [#Startistan] Episode 4 - ProCheck

    In episode 4, we're in conversation with Saim Sohaib Siddiqui, founder of ProCheck. ProCheck aims to ensure access to genuine products for consumers and help manufacturers regain access to market share by eliminating product counterfeiting. They work with pharmaceutical manufacturers to assign a unique code to every medicine pack. By having every medicine with a unique I.D, replicating the packaging becomes ineffective for counterfeiters. Patients simply have to SMS the code to 8776, and within seconds, receive confirmation that their medicine is genuine. To date, they have booked orders to protect over 40 million units of different medicines.
