CNN:

Young entrepreneurs like Ali Rehan, 26, are now exploiting this potential. Rehan and his team at Eyedeus Labs has created“Groopic,” a new smartphone app that lets you take a group picture — and put yourself in it. This way, the photographer will also be included in the picture. It’s easy to use and it’s making waves in the tech world.

Rehan told CNN about how the Internet as a medium is a “paradigm shift for all the companies working in Pakistan.”

Citing his company Eyedeus Labs as an example he said: “We worked on a product online, we launched it online, we marketed it online. We got featured by all these big blogs and we were contacted by smartphone companies.”

Picked up by Google, Rehan’s team was flown out to Silicon Valley for a mentoring program to develop its product. Now Rehan says that major mobile phone companies like Samsung, Huawei and LG are courting Eyedeus Labs. But they’re not the lone rangers in Pakistani tech talent.
