We are glad to announce that SD Asia is currently organizing Startup Weekend in Dhaka set to take place on 18-20th May at GP House, Bashundhara. Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures. You can view this video to see how it works.
We are glad to let you know that White-board is the Innovation Enabler for the event. Facebook is the Platinum Sponsor. Magnito Digital, Tripooly Razor Capital and English Essence are the Silver sponsors for the event. We are expecting more companies to be added to the partners’ list.
The 3-day event is designed to validate your idea in the shortest span of time. In the first day, participants will pitch their idea in 1-minute. Participants will vote for the best ideas. The idea has to be new and it can not be an existing business. Teams will form around the selected best ideas. If your idea gets selected, you choose who you want to form a team with. In case, your idea is not in the top category- you form teams with any other idea that you liked the best. On the second day, teams will work through the day to build a product around their ideas. Mentors and expert coaches will be available to help them. On the last day, teams will pitch their progress and their vision about their startups in front of judges. Top 3 teams will be selected and awarded with attractive packages from Facebook -FBStart and Ad-coupon.
