Podcast Series

Building Pakistan is a podcast that Benje hosted and produced with the Amal team.

It was a first of its kind in Pakistan, capturing the stories of the country’s institution builders: entrepreneurs and leaders who founded staple organizations post Partition. A Montessori school that became the country’s largest private school system. A small fabric shop in Lahore that grew into one of the leading fashion labels. A milk company that helped galvanize the entire agriculture sector.

Through conversations, these eight entrepreneurs told stories they’d never publicly shared, to a growing generation of entrepreneurs and leaders hungry to learn.
