In early 2022, COLABS raised $3 million in a seed round led by Indus Valley Capital, Zayn Capital, and Fatima Gobi Ventures. This was the first time these three leading Pakistan-focused VCs invested together in a startup. COLABS had previously raised $1 million in a pre-seed round. The round was also joined by Shorooq Partners, Kinnow Capital, Muir Capital, Sai Ventures, and a few angel investors including Turner Novak, William Hockey, and Teddy Himler.

The COLABS community today has 1500 seats and over 100 companies across multiple facilities in Pakistan. Our community is a mix of freelancers, startups, SMEs and MNCs (Including Rocket Internet, Patari, SadaPay, 10pearls, USAID, OMD and Coca Cola).

COLABS is a hub for young and aspiring entrepreneurs and houses a 1:2 gender ratio within its spaces and a 1:2 ratio with the COLABS team itself. The average age of the in-house member is 27 years.

The initial home to Pakistan’s first towel factory, WATEX c.1958; an industrial relic that had outlived its duty and was threatened by decay. The factory was gutted, repurposed and is now filled with new life as a contemporary co-working space with an industrial chic edge, creating COLABS’ first flagship site.
