Monzula Morshed, Chief Human Resources and Administration Officer, Banglalink said, “We have been running a number of programs to ignite the entrepreneurial spirit of promising youngsters. While ‘Learn from the startups’ gives students an exposure to the startup scenario, ‘Ennovators’ provides them with opportunities to come up with innovative digital ideas to solve social problems of Bangladesh. We are running another program named ‘IT Incubator’ to facilitate the growth of early-stage startups. Our efforts will surely inspire the youngsters to come up with innovative ideas that address various societal challenges. Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, we had to conduct the program virtually this year. But the collaborative efforts of the students, entrepreneurs and organizers have made it a success nonetheless.”
Professor Dr. Abu Md. Delwar Hossain, Dean, Faculty of Arts, University of Dhaka appreciated & said, “This initiative will assist our promising youngsters to do something on their own to solve social problems. Thanks to Dhaka University Career Club & Banglalink to come up with this unique training session. It is a truly praiseworthy training which will be worthwhile for developing the startup scenario remarkably even in the pandemic”
Banglalink will continue to facilitate youth empowerment digitally by taking similar initiatives.
