Waqar Rashid Nagi,is an alumni of SZABIST and ex-treasurer of SZABIST Entrepreneurial Society.
He started his venture with zero capital in 2012 and evolve’s functioning philosophy can be summed up with their Tag line “Be Better. Be Customized”.They are the pioneer’s in the online industry in bringing out a brand that caters to customer’s requirements and provides a “custom fit”/stitched product that continues to change the perception about buying products made of high quality Egyptian fabrics online . They currently deliver shirts all over Pakistan and they have quite a big number of loyal customers who Waqar calls his ‘Evolvers’.
Waqar says that believing in yourself is the key to launching a start-up. He further comments that “Accepting challenges and always being ready to accept change is fundamental. I design the posters for Evolve myself, I learned Photoshop from Youtube (at the time it used to be open) and yes, I have learned it to the extent that I know all what is taught at the SZABIST workshops. I made sure that when I start, I don’t have an excuse to say ‘No’ to something”.
In 10 years time, Waqar sees Evolve to be one of the Best and well renowned brands for men’s clothing in Pakistan with more than 100 SKUs or unique products.
In the end he adds ,”We have a long way to go, as our imagination is not limited as is the road to success”.
