Bangladesh startup scene is growing fast. Startups have proliferated in recent years while the ecosystem is also maturing fast.To make things even better, Bangladesh Government has also started to contribute actively to the ecosystem.
Connecting Startup Bangladesh, the first ever Government's initiative to connect startups and innovators and entrepreneurs, launched in October 2015 with an aim to select a batch of startups for an upcoming Government supported incubator program called StartUp Incubator of the Janata Tower STP (Software Technology Park).
The program, a PPP project by nature, is a joint initiative of ICT Division of Bangladesh Government, Bangladesh Hi-Tech Park Authority (BHTPA) and BASIS.
