Omar Qureshi, Media sciences Student at Szabist..
Co–founded with Ibrahim Khan (BABS) and Uswa Ali, , an organization of talented young individuals which aims to promote Hyderabad by giving all those people who’ve made a striking difference, be it through opening amazing restaurants or by capturing astonishing photographs of the Tower Market area or even by making inspiring music, a platform to showcase to the thousands of people connected on Facebook and beyond.
HidHydians was established in June 2012 on Facebook and due to the continuous popularity of their idea, their fan base kept growing bigger and stronger. It now proudly stands at around 12,000 fans on Facebook and the organization is pretty recognized in reputable terms by every socially active moving body of Hyderabad.
How important have good employees been to your success?
I’d rather prefer using ‘teammates’ instead of ‘employees’ because all the people I work with literally pull off all the projects by taking their tasks quite seriously. Those amazing individuals are the reason why all our projects turned out to be successful. And I’d also like to add that it is extremely essential to select those people who’re good at making an impression on the team by doing their job with absolute perfection.
Where did your organization’s funding come from ?
It depends upon the projects we undertake. The last huge project HidHydians completed was of making the first travel magazine of Hyderabad – Main Hoon Hyderabad. It was funded by the company’s retained earnings and then by sponsorships.
Where you see yourself and your business in 10 years’ time?
I wish to see HidHydians as one of the best creative advertising agency of Pakistan, in 10 years from now. Also, I wish to not only sign contracts with companies based in Hyderabad and Karachi, but also with the leading international companies who’re looking for people who could help their businesses with some killing branding techniques.
