A Bangladeshi web portal— Environmentmove.com—which deals with nature, wildlife, agriculture and environmental issues, became the champion of the first season of Launchpad Bangladesh.

The grand finale of the capacity building training boot camp programme for startups took place at the senate building of Dhaka University in the capital on Friday.

Launchpad Bangladesh was initiated by The Preneurs and funded by EMK Centre.

The programme sourced startups from across the country and trained, mentored and groomed them to make them sustainable, according to a statement.

Five teams out of 172 entries from almost all the science, engineering and business schools of the country were selected to fight for the Tk 2.5 lakh seed capital financing prize, according to the statement.

Sami Bin Sagir, coordinator of Launchpad Bangladesh and cofounder of The Preneurs, announced that the second season of the event will start by the end of 2014.

AAMS Arefin Siddique, vice chancellor of Dhaka University; MK Aaref, chief executive of the EMK Centre; and Md Sabur Khan, immediate past president of Dhaka Chamber of Commerce and Industry, attended the programme.
