Abstract:
    A social entrepreneurship project to create awareness about work-study programs, promote self-sustainable skill development, and empower social and financial stability in students.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    For a society that has a 29% population of young adults, we have lesser part-time work opportunities for students. They face serious challenges in seeking guidance regarding financial empowerment. Many struggle to finance their lifestyle or education.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Our target market is high school and undergraduate students of Pakistan who intend to capitalize on their skills. We can especially benefit students who face financial constraints. Uraan envisions impacting around 40% of the entire youth of Pakistan.
How will the solution works
    Aim: -Collaborate with industry partners to create part-time and remote work opportunities for students-Promote freelancing and online jobs via our social media page-Redefine apprenticeship for aspiring entrepreneurs, allowing them to assist and shadow start-ups-Mobile app/website for mentorship portal Current standing: -Normalizing work-study by sharing stories of students managing a successful work-study balance-Guiding students through our peer-mentorship program via Zoom or WhatsApp
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Our competitors are Kamayi.pk, E-rozgar, Tajraba.pk and Amal Academy; which are either focusing on capacity building or sharing jobs. We are creating a bridge between the two. We aim to change the policy around work-study programs and impact the economy by unleashing the true potential of youth.
