Our rising entrepreneurs
The youth are the future of Bangladesh, but after they finish their undergraduate degrees, they spend long periods of time looking for a job. This is a very common scenario, because there are few jobs available compared to the number of unemployed candidates. However, some do end up starting their own small businesses, curbing unemployment in the process. The Bangladeshi corporate environment needs to be more friendly towards such startups and encourage the risk-taking mentality of the new entrepreneurs.
