Entrepreneurship Development

Entrepreneurship Development

EMK Center has sponsored and will continue to sponsor a number of startup events that encourage students and young graduates to come up with new business ideas. We hope to see many of them to come out as successful business entities.

Entrepreneurship Development


Given the number of youths coming of age every year to the job market, our economy still is not large enough to absorb them all. At the same time, through the spread of information technology, this demographic group is well connected, better informed, and exposed to new ideas like never before. The economies of many countries are based on the success of small and medium sized enterprises that have started as startups. Bangladesh has tremendous untapped potential in this sector, both in opportunities, and in market segments.
