Meet Our President
Salik Sulaiman Malik
President, OPEN Toronto
Entrepreneurs are described as the visionary, innovative, risk takers, influential, leader, creative and opportunistic people. I am a strong believer of "Entrepreneurship is a mindset, not a business model". Having this mindset anyone can succeed regardless of their role in life as an entrepreneur, intrapreneur or doing a job.
OPEN's goals include fostering entrepreneurship, business acceleration, professional growth, bridging the gaps, cross-chapter collaboration and belief in brand Pakistan. Our team at OPEN is committed to providing opportunities to the individuals and organizations to Connect, Innovate & Disrupt.
