PopCorn Studio, the brainchild of Amir Attique who officially launched it in October 2016, becoming one of the pioneers of co-working spaces in Lahore city. Now, after a year of a successful run, PopCorn Studio has expanded and branched out with three more branches in Lahore and Islamabad city, making it one of the most rapidly growing co-working network in Pakistan.
Amir started working for his studio’s investment cost during his university days by managing small businesses, arranging events at his alma mater and doing software projects. After facing lots of highs and lows, his focused approach and sheer commitment lead him to establish a name for PopCorn Studio. Today! at age 24, Amir is already running his Co-Working Spaces Network successfully.
PopCorn Studio got more recognition when various start-ups which were conceived and established at the studio got accepted at Plan9, one of the well-known one is Paaltu.pk. PopCorn Studio provided them the right infrastructure and a positive environment to let their ideas flow freely. Budget-friendly packages of the studio became its most attractive feature for freelancers and start-ups who were tired of paying staggering amounts of rent, electricity, internet & refreshment at commercial offices.
