The Founding Story of FiveRivers Technologies 

Remember, only YOU can make the difference for yourself! We are responsible for our success and for this, passion & hard work are all you need. – Mahe Zehra Husain

Mahe Zehra Husain, CEO FiveRivers Technologies is one of the prominent female CEOs of Pakistan in Tech. She has an educational background and training in Mathematics, Data Science, and Operations Research. She joined FiveRivers Technologies in 2010 at an early age.

“At a very young age, I was drowned in numbers, puzzles, and figuring out patterns, my problem solving skills helped me become the person I am today”, said Mahe Zehra Husain. She said, “Challenges are part of life, we must welcome them every day with a smile. Because nothing worthwhile is ever easy!”

FiveRivers Technologies was founded in 2003 and is one of the top Tech companies in Pakistan working on cutting-edge technologies. Whether it be enterprise solutions, virtualization,machine learning, AI, AR/VR or data science, FiveRivers Technologies has expertise in all and has developed high-end desktop and mobile applications, winning international awards. 

“FiveRivers Technologies is always excited about the future, we’re trying to create the reality of our dreams and none of it is possible without innovating and pushing our limits everyday.” She added, “Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Virtual Reality (VR) are revolutionising the world. We at FiveRivers Technologies are working on some really exciting projects that will hopefully change the future.” 

Other than a custom software development house, FiveRivers Technologieshas recently launched a project for Pakistani manufacturers and makers called PakistanCreates. PakistanCreates is an online marketplace to showcase the talent of local makers of Pakistan. The platform supports made-in-Pakistan, manufactured-in-Pakistan, and produced-in-Pakistan products. What separates PakistanCreates from any other platform is its quality and standard!

“PakistanCreates is a product of FiveRivers Technologies and is a way for us to give back to our country. The platform is going to support talented local makers, small and large businesses, women-led businesses, and anyone who makes or builds quality products in Pakistan. There is so much untapped talent in Pakistan that just needs some investment and support.”

She added, “PakistanCreates is going to gather talent in one place, it is a platform that is offering endless growth opportunities to women and young makers where they can sell their products and grow without having to invest in a website. The ultimate objective of this project is to help boost our national economy and offer exciting growth opportunities to talented Pakistanis.” 

“Eventually,” says Mahe Zehra, “achieving anything worthwhile is hard. You need to know why you’re doing this and hold on to your passion to make it through the tough times. Perseverance commands success!”
