The growth and popularity of RISC-V can be attributed to the many regional and industry alliances we maintain around the world. Regional alliances are able to communicate locally, provide local events, and maintain relationships in a way that no single organization could do on its own. Likewise, industry alliances create multiple feedback channels on both technical and non-technical topics that help both the RISC-V community and the industries using the RISC-V technology. We are grateful for the many regional and industry alliances that keep RISC-V an international and vibrant community.

Open Source Foundation Pakistan

The youth of Pakistan is hardworking and have brilliant minds, but face a lot of challenges in the technology world. Lack of access to innovative technologies, financial constraints for young entrepreneurs, lack of industry-academia linkage, and not being able to consult and network with the Pakistani successful professionals working in the latest technologies are some of the challenges whose solution lead to the creation of Open Source Foundation of Pakistan.

Usage of Open Source Technologies can help in coping up with the latest and innovative technologies. Contributing to Open Source Technologies could increase the exposure and enhance the experience of the youngsters according to the international market. Young entrepreneurs could save time and money by using already built open-source projects and could increase their revenue by customizing the project according to their needs in a shorter period of time. OSPF’s industry-academia linkage department have a strong voice in shaping the academics according to the industry needs. Connecting professionals to young entrepreneurs and students is a primary objective of OSFP.
