Azima Dhanjee, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of ConnectHear, is a business administration student at Institute of Business Administration, Karachi. She shares her motivation behind the start up. ‘Growing up, I saw my deaf and mute parents struggle with communicating with the outside world. I saw raw talent go unrecognized because of the barrier that is language. Using that as motivation, I have always wanted to create a platform to remove this communication gap and help the deaf and mute people reach their potentials,’ she says.
ConnectHear aims at providing sign interpretation services, both in person and through video call. The start up envisions developing an audio to Pakistan Sign Language software.
