We originated at the Aga Khan University in Karachi, Pakistan, in December 2013, to create and nurture a culture of innovation
through creativity, critical thinking, and entrepreneurship. From a student-centric society, CCIT has evolved into a sector-agnostic
hub for pre-ideation, ideation, and early-stage incubation, engaging organizations and individuals from across the country for innovation in healthcare and beyond.
In January 2020, we launched a unique Innovation Fellowship to train young professionals in the specs of creative innovation
and entrepreneurship for healthcare and biomedicine in low resource settings. In 2023, with upcoming FAS and the need for a community based innovation ecosystem, this morphed into the Global Innovation Fellowship.
The experience of founding a healthcare/social innovation/incubation hub has been summarized in our book, “MEDJACK: the
extraordinary journey of an ordinary hack", also AKU's first-ever digital book.
