OUR STORY & TEAM
Shetab Afghanistan is co-founded by Ajmal Paiman (Afghanistan) and Azadeh Tajdar (the Netherlands), two passionate impact entrepreneurs with extensive backgrounds in social entrepreneurship.
Shetab is a solutions-driven organization. We are always on the look-out for Afghan entrepreneurs and social innovators with solutions that address economic, social and environmental challenges in Afghanistan.
We look for:
The solution must clearly articulate how the solution solves a problem
An original or more effective solution to solve a problem or unmet need
The solution must identify how to measure short and long-term milestones
The solution ensures long-term viability, and/or scalability of the venture
We believe that Afghan entrepreneurs, social innovators and activists have the talent, drive and passion to develop and expand ventures that can impact on a large scale, solving daunting challenges in Afghanistan.
These entrepreneurs and innovators need business/organizational support, networks, resources and leadership skills to overcome many obstacles in order to develop and expand their ventures.
We support young Afghan social entrepreneurs with innovative ideas with tools, access to international/regional networks and resources to shape their ideas into viable ventures with social, economic or environmental impact.
We share a vision about Central, West and East Asia that transcends borders - and one that is founded on thousands of years of wealth, prosperity and well-being of its people. With our incredible and growing community of like-minded individuals and diverse organizations, we are creating a vibrant startup and social innovation community in Afghanistan that believes in the power of collaboration and co-creation, shaping a more inclusive future for its citizens.
