Social Champ’s 2019 in Spotlight
It all started with Social Champ being a birthday gift. A vision, to manage social media without wasting time, coming to life. When friends work together as co-founders, wonders happen. And that’s what made Social Champ a success from the beginning.
A startup with motivation, a vision to be on the top, belief, and dedication by the team – today, Social Champ is ahead of many others. We continuously aim to provide social media management solutions to individuals and other businesses in the digital world.

Social Champ Yearly Review 2019: Events & Workshops
2019 has been a happening year at Social Champ. We participated in many events, seminars, and workshops all around the globe. Here are a few which we are excited to share with you.
1. OTF Wadi Accelerator Program, Oman
Earlier in January 2019, “Social Champ was one of the 12 startups selected from the entire MENA region for the second cohort of the OTF Wadi Accelerator Program founded by Oman Tech Fund.”
Not just that, Social Champ was also the one to receive the investment of $100,000 from OTF Wadi Accelerator.
Two of the three co-founders, Sameer Ahmed and Zohaib Ahmed, were part of the three months training program held in Oman. They had gone through a rigorous training program managed by Wadi Accelerator, that had workshops related to, growth hacking, analytics, financials, marketing, etc.
2. Startup Training Program, UK
Social Champ was invited for a startup training program held in Hambro Perks, London. The three weeks training program involved financial training, marketing, and growth hacking and how to track the right data for growth. The program helped the company in solving team-based problems and the development of business models for creating a foundation for a viable company.
3. GITEX, Dubai
Social Champ was proud to be part of the Middle East’s most happening event Gitex Technology Week and representing as a Pakistani startup with their channel partners, Ashraf Kalim and Zain Moosa from Magnus Communications.
This was the first time Social Champ’s application was introduced in the Arabic language for the MENA region. We also got to collaborate with different agencies and startups from different countries.
4. 021Disrupt 19
Being the outreach partner of the most happening technology event held in Karachi is one of the best memories of 2019. 021Disrupt is considered as the premier entrepreneurship conference organized by NestIO. Social Champ was also pitched by Sameer Ahmed Khan in the startup rapid-fire round in 021Disrupt.
What’s Next for Social Champ in 2020 – Founder’s View
“In 2020, I, along with my development team, will be focusing on strengthening our platform to provide more value and capabilities to our customers. We aim to achieve all the targets we have set for Social Champ in our 2020 roadmap promptly. The main goal is to do better than we did last year.”
CTO & co-founder, Zohaib Ahmed Shakir
“We wish to celebrate new heights of monthly growth this year. In 2020, one of our product team goals is to implement smaller, more frequent releases that improve our product with every update. We’ll be working enthusiastically to be available to our customers all the time.”
COO & co-founder, Shakir Ghani
“As we move into a new decade, it had been an exciting 2019 journey for Social Champ. We have had customers organically referring others to us and giving valuable suggestions that transformed our entire product as the year ended. “Engage” was launched because it was the most requested platform by our customers. I’m proud of the community we have on social media but there is still room for improvement. Moving forward in 2020, we will be focusing more on helping agencies along with small-medium size businesses. We see that there is a lot of development and innovation that can be done to promote and grow the businesses of our customers. Keeping this in mind, expect different digital solutions from us in 2020. Our focus will also be to grow our team and improve our company culture. The team at Social Champ is the core of our company, each of us is a leader in the work they do. We will invest more time in training and developing a healthy company culture that will help us create more leaders to better serve our society and businesses.”
CEO & co-founder, Sameer Ahmed Khan
