Young entrepreneurs from US meet Yunus

A team of 16 young entrepreneurs from the US called on Professor Muhammad Yunus at Yunus Centre in Dhaka on Saturday.
Professor Yunus elaborated on his renowned microcredit programmes, and stressed that entrepreneurship was at the heart of all positive human endeavours.
“All human beings are basically entrepreneurs,” Yunus said.
The delegation from the US state of Oklahoma is in Bangladesh on an exchange programme supported by the US Department of State.
The programme is being implemented jointly by Centre for Entrepreneurship Development of BRAC University and the University of Oklahoma.
A Bangladeshi delegation toured USA earlier in October 2012.
Many interesting and game-changing ideas in the realm of social development and poverty alleviation were started by Yunus, said Daniel Pullin, the founding director of the Oklahoma University's Centre for the Creation of Economic Wealth.
“This made this meeting very valuable,” Pullin said.
