VINNCORP, a digital tech startup, has secured its first round of funding from HRSG, a leading people and business solutions firm.
The six-figure initial investment of $100,000 from HRSG will help enhance VINNCORP’s reach locally and globally.
Commenting on the occasion, Founder and CEO VINNCORP, Khurram Gulistan, said, “We are confident that this investment will help in refining VINNCORP’s product portfolio further, in addition to expanding our service provision beyond our current capacity.”
Joining him, Co-founder and COO VINNCORP, Khurram Kalimi, an IBA alumnus, added, “This has come at a time when uncertainty is high because of the prevailing pandemic, and we are glad that we will also be able to create employment opportunities in the tech industry.”
Pakistan has more than 76 million internet users and more than 37 million active social media accounts, offering tremendous opportunities for growth in the digital economy. The growth of VINNCORP will help create new jobs for local professionals and also contribute positively to the Pakistani economy.

Their philosophy of helping clients solve the impossible and their relentless commitment to building a diverse organization with the brightest minds is a recipe for excellence and has positioned VINNCORP for tremendous success in the years ahead. HRSG is proud to be a small part of this journey with VINNCORP, and is very excited about the future.”
