Abshaar: A Watershed Innovation for a Sustainable Future

In a world where the demand for water is surging and the spectre of a severe water scarcity crisis looms, Pakistan has earned the unenviable distinction of being the third-largest water user per capita. Alarming reports from the UN and IMF forecast that by 2025, Pakistan will be grappling with acute water scarcity. Even during the challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic, water usage saw an astonishing 40% increase per tap, leaving us with a mere 3 to 4 years to avert this impending catastrophe.

Amid this crisis, the Social Entrepreneurship Program (SEP) in partnership with the Chaudhry Muhammad Akram Center for Entrepreneurship Development (CMACED) has undertaken a groundbreaking initiative – the “Abshaar” project. Abshaar is not just a nozzle; it is a beacon of hope. It can be effortlessly installed in any tap and offers an extraordinary solution. This ingenious device conserves a remarkable 98% of water and 60% of electricity, effectively addressing the impending water crisis with unparalleled efficiency.

SEP’s unique approach goes beyond the conventional norms of entrepreneurship. It actively champions the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN-SDGs) by engaging in community development, empowering the youth, and fostering active citizenship. SEP is more than an institution; it is a catalyst for positive social change. Its initiatives don’t merely highlight real-life issues; they provide practical, tangible solutions for a more sustainable and secure future.

At the heart of this remarkable success story is the visionary entrepreneur behind “Abshaar.” His dedication, innovation, and unwavering commitment to addressing one of the most pressing challenges of our time have made him an influential change-maker. His journey exemplifies the extraordinary impact that can be achieved when the spirit of entrepreneurship is nurtured in the supportive environment of Superior University.

Superior University takes immense pride in its contributions to projects like “Abshaar,” which not only impact the local community but also play a crucial role in the global mission to preserve our most vital resource: water. This endeavour showcases the true potential of entrepreneurial ventures as a force for positive change.

In the world of technological innovation, a remarkable journey began at Superior University with a vision to make a difference. Meet EyeAutomate, a pioneering startup that has not only made waves locally but has also garnered international recognition, firmly establishing itself as a symbol of excellence that is “Made in Superior.”

It all started at Superior Entrepreneurial Expo 2019 when EyeAutomate emerged as Pakistan’s first startup to create an eye gaze interaction software. This groundbreaking innovation caught the attention of tech enthusiasts and experts alike, setting the stage for an extraordinary journey.

EyeAutomate’s journey continued to gain momentum as it clinched the first prize at Momentum Tech Conference 2019.

EyeAutomate’s crowning achievement was at Momentum Tech Conference, where it made history as Pakistan’s first startup to create an eye gaze control software. This innovative technology empowers physically disabled individuals to carry out a wide range of activities through the simple movement of their eyes. It was a moment that not only marked technological advancement but also symbolized inclusivity and empowerment.

EyeAutomate’s success story continued to unfold as it won accolades not only in Pakistan but around the world. Their dedication to creating innovative solutions for the physically impaired resonated with audiences globally. It was an embodiment of the idea that entrepreneurship can indeed change lives and make a meaningful impact.

On Independence Day, Superior University celebrated the success of EyeAutomate, a unique idea that had its roots in the Chaudhry Muhammad Akram Center for Entrepreneurship Development, mentored by Rector Superior University Dr. Sumaira Rehman. What began as an idea had now become a full-fledged business, providing solutions to people and materializing dreams. It was a shining example of hope and a step toward achieving an economically superior Pakistan.

EyeAutomate’s journey started at Superior University’s Center for Entrepreneurship and Development, later graduating into Plan9 in 2017. Their success story became an integral part of the entrepreneurial ecosystem. Dr. Sumaira Rehman’s efforts, along with the Entrepreneurship Teaching and Training Program (ETTP), played a pivotal role in shaping an entrepreneurial mindset that was now making a significant impact.

EyeAutomate is not just a startup; it’s a testament to the power of innovation, determination, and the environment of support and mentorship fostered at Superior University. It represents the spirit of ‘Made in Superior’ – a journey that began with an idea and transformed into a proud globally recognised success story.
