Bangladesh is making rapid economic progress and the country is now earning $37 billion foreign exchange from exports.
The young generation has huge potentials to become entrepreneurs, as financing a project is not a problem at all now.
Speakers made the view at a seminar on the sideline of the Global Entrepreneurship Week-2018 that ended recently.
The seminar titled ‘Entrepreneurial Mindset & Entrepreneurship’ was jointly organised by Entrepreneurs Forum of RAOWA and Department of Innovation and Entrepreneurship of Daffodil International University (DIU) at RAOWA Convention Centre in Dhaka recently.
AZM Azizur Rahman, former member, Bangladesh Export Processing Zones Authority and Chairman & CEO of Investors Services Co Ltd was present in the seminar as the chief guest.
Golam Monowar Kamal, managing director, Bangladesh Venture Capital Ltd (BVCL) and Mizanur Rahman Raju, director, students affairs of DIU were present at the seminar as the discussants.
K M Hasan Ripon, chief executive officer of Bangladesh Skill Development Institute moderated the seminar. Brigadier General Mahbubul Alam, vice president of RAOWA , Abu Taher Khan, director, Career Development Center ( CDC) of DIU and RAOWA member Lieutenant Shahid Zaman also spoke.
AZM Azizur Rahman said, there is no time frame and age limit to become an entrepreneur. Anyone can become an entrepreneur any time at any age and what he or she needs is taking risks. Without risk, success is not possible.
Golam Monowar Kamal said, for starting a business, investment is needed at first.
In the past, it was a big challenge for a young entrepreneur to collect fund.
Banks were not interested to finance projects of young entrepreneurs. But now-a-days, capital collection is not a big deal. Many venture capital companies like BVCL are highly interested to give fund to young entrepreneurs.
