The BYOB Lab: An Online Academy to Help You Be Your Own Boss

The BYOB Lab is an online academy allowing you to be your own boss so that you can escape the regular 9 to 5 working lifestyle and work from anywhere, anytime.

Due to COVID-19, many have gotten a chance to practice the term ‘work from home’ to the fullest. Before the pandemic, people were hesitant to work as a freelancer or from home. Even the employers were quite skeptical before this year. However, the situation forced everyone to adapt to the changing times and this led to the evolution of working from home in Pakistan. Jumping on the bandwagon, The BYOB Lab – which stands for ‘be your own boss’ – is teaching you to be free from the regular 9 to 5 job.

Founded by two young entrepreneurs, Ali Shan Shalwani and Afreen Mansoor, this startup is incubated at The Nest I/O with hopes of making freelancing much easier and common. These two entrepreneurs started The BYOB Lab to help others escape that 9 to 5 office work life and become much more flexible.

A little introduction about the founders of The BYOB Lab:
