The organisation’s core service is to build and expand businesses, regardless of their existing condition. The team at SEED believe in ‘collaborative creation’ and work through strategic partnerships with the education, private, public, financial, and media sectors to create and employ indigenous solutions in the areas of policy reform, holistic research, stakeholder engagement, investments, entrepreneurial training, sustainable enterprise development and financial inclusion. This unique organisation’s global presence, strongly established in the UK and Middle East allows us to create cross-economic partnerships, and transfer expertise and knowledge to aspiring and existing entrepreneurs. This helps to bridge the gaps between them and the different sectors that SEED works with.

The team at SEED conduct regular surveys to identify problems faced by entrepreneurs; of those at the grass-root level all the way to high-end investors. Success for this innovative organisation would be entirely impossible without the support of a dedicated senior management team, led by CEO and Co-Founder Faraz Khan, a UK-based Pakistani social entrepreneur, investor, published author and public speaker. He is regarded as a leading authority on social entrepreneurship and believes in bringing a positive change in the society with forward-thinking business models that allow him to fulfil a personal commitment to improve the lives of people in the UK, Pakistan and beyond. He is passionate about bridging gaps between continents and nations through entrepreneurship, business and trade. An MBA Marketing graduate from the University of Lincoln, Faraz truly believes that one must never cease to learn and grow, and education is acquired through formal as well as unassuming means. Hence, his four years at Common Purpose, combined with a multitude of first-hand experiences of the entrepreneurial world, groomed him into a true leader and social engineer, who continued to evolve reform and create. Ultimately, SEED’s vision is to create and develop a global sphere of entrepreneurial solutions across multiple structured verticals in regional, national and international markets to bring about a societal and economic change, and this will remain the organisation’s ongoing focus as it looks towards a bright future.
