SD ASIA is a content and event platform that connects entrepreneurs and investors. From May 2014, you’ve seen SD ASIA (formally Startup Dhaka) bring you stories about local entrepreneurs and startups. We’ve told you about all the cool things happening in the Startup culture of Dhaka and Bangladesh, including hackathons, workshops, competitions and other events. After Innovation Xtreme in November, we’ve expanded beyond borders and have started to bring you stories from business and startup scene from all around Asia.
But SD ASIA did not simply stop at telling stories and bringing content. We have held and sponsored various startups and entrepreneurship events since our inception. We’ve held a series of GIST events that focused on various aspects of running startups. We continue to hold more events on startups and entrepreneurship from here on in, either on our own or by partnering with other organisations who are just as passionate about the spirit of entrepreneurship as us.
We want to bring you, the audience, more stories from across Bangladesh and across Asia. We also want our content and events to go further and wider and reach more people. With that aim in mind, SD ASIA has recently partnered with The Independent, a leading national English daily.
Through our partnership, we hope that our content will reach more people especially who are interested in entrepreneurship and startups. But it’s not about just content either as we hope to partner with The Independent in our future events as well.
2015 has just started, we look forward to a fruitful partnership between us and The Independent. We also hope to partner with more offline and online media brands to share our local startup and business stories with the world.
