Two years ago we started a journey without a map. We just started. Because we loved making ruckus and doing what we were doing. After two years we are now Future Startup-Bangladesh’s first and only place to talk about starting-up and entrepreneurship. We never knew this would happen!
17,520 hours is a long time. Lots of changes happened. We made progress on some metrics and plummeted on others. That does not matter. Ups and downs are what make a path worth taking. However, to us the most valuable of all changes is of course the rise of startups, startup community, and enthusiasm centering entrepreneurship. This was entirely new for us-at least to some extent. The progress we have made is revolutionary.
We are not afraid to confess that our partnership in this journey is nothing more than an act of serendipity. But we are more than happy to be a part of this wonderful journey.
Now we want to make it count. We believe that there are more to do, more to contribute, and more to change for good. We are ready and willing to raise the stake.

Bangladesh deserves more: We could be a great nation with glorious history, amazing amount of young people, 60% of total population, and amazing culture of sharing, hospitality, and diversity. Everyday somewhere in Bangladesh someone is making a difference. We have endless problems, critical obstacles and more. But in the midst of all these we are making progress. We want to put all these great stories on the global map. And we will do it.
We understand these are way more ambitious goals than what we are capable of doing. And the journey we are about to embark on is risky and uncertain as well. However, we believe together we can achieve impossible. We invite you join us and be a part of this journey.
