Yasin Altaf
Chief Executive Officer

Mr. Altaf is a seasoned technology entrepreneur with over 20 years of experience. He has extensive experience in defining and successfully launching bleeding edge technology products and services at several startup companies internationally. Technology is his passion and strategic execution is his strength. His flair for technology led to the creation of Robotics Labs at a time when no one in the country even knew what STEM stood for. His vision and efforts have resulted in creating a space for STEM education in Pakistan and training over 5,000 kids over the last few years. With experience in Silicon Valley, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and UAE he has successfully led technology startups with hundreds of employees. His latest investment is in GoodCore Software that specializes in very niche software development for startups in Silicon Valley, and now venturing into the mobile apps and gaming (3D and Augmented Reality) space. He is a strong believer in “devil is in the detail” and has a bad habit of going into stuff at the bit/byte level. Having spent most of his career in Product Management in technology companies, he continue to lead teams to very defined and refined product plans and strategies.

 

Mr Altaf holds a BS in Electrical Engineering (RF Design) from the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

Saira Yasin
Chief Operating Officer

Ms Yasin brings over 12 years of general management experience at Robotics Labs. She is the creative and marketing brain behind the venture. Her efforts have resulted in the introduction of STEM education at over two dozen different educational institutions in Karachi and growing the company from a mere 3 employees to almost 20 employees today. Her relentless efforts to stay ahead of the game results in new course offerings that cater to the different needs of our younger generation. Her current initiative to add “Arts” to the mix of courses will evolve Robotics Labs from a STEM institute to a “STEAM” institute. Her attention to detail and quality has helped Robotics Labs maintain its leadership position in the country. A strong believer in women empowerment, she is trying her best to increase the interest of girls into the technology domain … an initiative that has always been at the back-burner for most of the world. She is very approachable and maintains a direct one-on-one with as many schools and parents as possible.

 

Ms. Yasin holds a BA degree in Textiles Design from the Indus Valley School of Art & Architecture.
