Sandbox is the brainchild of Anjam Sohail and Faisal Manzoor, two childhood friends who between them have nearly forty years of experience launching and running various businesses in the United Kingdom and Pakistan. The Sandbox project came about following a lengthy discussion regarding the dearth of technology companies in the State and how the whole entrepreneurship culture thriving in regional neighbours had completely bypassed Azad Kashmir. The lack of investment and poor infrastructure has resulted in talent leakage to other regions of Pakistan and further afield to the Middle East. Despite having the highest literacy rate in the country, opportunities for the educated youth of Azad Kashmir are scarce. The Sandbox project quickly evolved from a simple technology company to a multipurpose technology hub that is not only providing employment to the highly educated population but taking those that dream of doing more with their lives and giving them the perfect environment to step in to the world of entrepreneurship. These young new entrepreneurs will in turn become employers and thus the cycle continues.
