CEO & Founder, Aimfit
Mahlaqa Shaukat grew up in Pakistan and subsequently, moved to the UK to pursue higher education at the Oxford University where she completed her Master's in Engineering, Economics and Management (EEM) before joining Deloitte Consulting in London. Passionate about the socio-economic development of her country, she returned to Pakistan and led Teach for Pakistan’s Lahore operations. Being a fitness enthusiast in the UK, upon returning to Pakistan, she realised how limited her options were in group fitness classes. She started teaching classes in her spare time primarily for friends, and soon she set off on a journey to create a brand offering world class, quality and affordable fitness classes to all demographics. Shaukat is the Founder and CEO of AimFit, Pakistan's first venture capital backed digital fitness platform for women that started its digital operations in 2021, via a dedicated fitness app.
