  • Pakistan start-ups received cUS$330mn in 2021, this is over twice as large as the previous five years combined

  • E-commerce leads with over half of funding value and fintech coming in at second with a quarter share

  • Start-up funding should remain strong: per capita funding is still very low and late-stage deals have yet to kick in
