About Us

DYL Ventures is a startup consultancy focused on the tech industry in Pakistan. This site is managed by me, Adam Dawood and I am currently based out of Pakistan & the UK.

I have over 8 years of experience in the eCommerce industry, having worked in high-level positions in Daraz, Kaymu and Yayvo. I have also set up several of my own eCommerce site, the largest of which was PetPeople.pk, which we ran from 2013 until 2018. I am an MBA from Tsinghua University, Beijing and have a Finance degree from Durham University in the UK.

I was a core member of the initial team that successfully launched Daraz.pk, the success of which allowed Rocket Internet to bring in more e-commerce ventures to Pakistan. Following Daraz, I was also the Co-Founder & Managing Director of Kaymu.pk where having joined the company two years after its inception, I grew orders more than 365% and revenue by over 550% in our first year.

In 2016, I was hired by the Board of TCS Holdings to run Yayvo, which is an eCommerce marketplace they have funded. Yayvo at its peak did over $20M in annual GMV with a team of more than a hundred professionals focused on making the eCommerce buying experience easy, simple and convenient.
