A British Pakistani businessman and founding member of CPIC, Zeeshan Shah, was “International Entrepreneur of the Year 2019” at the annual Asian Business Awards.
British Professionals and business heavyweights of Pakistani, Indian, Chinese, and Bangladeshi origin have been rewarded for their outstanding achievements. The final prize and the highest honor of the night were awarded to Zeeshaan Shah, a British serial entrepreneur, and former Pakistani apprentice.
A British entrepreneur, Zeeshaan Shah is a self-made entrepreneur who came to the UK from Pakistan nine years ago with almost nothing in his pocket. It said that Shah now owns multi-million-pound businesses with offices in Karachi, Gwadar, Islamabad, Dubai, London and New York with over 400 employees and projects under development in excess of $500 million USD.
According to organizers, the special award of “The International Entrepreneur of the Year” has been started to recognize “a true giant of the business world”.
“I came to London nine years ago with £500 in my pocket and it is unbelievable to be standing here today and winning this accolade. As a British-Pakistani representing Pakistan on the highest level of business in British society is an honor for me. Pakistanis are amongst the most intelligent people in the world if we apply our minds positively. I hope my victory as International Entrepreneur of the Year can inspire more Pakistanis to rise to the pinnacle of their chosen fields and understand what potential we have as a nation both in Pakistan and globally.”
Zeeshan Shah said his company is investing heavily in Gwadar and that this has been recognized internationally as more and more investors seek to spend money in the gateway city.
