BD Venture Launches Crowdfunding Platform FundSME

Sep 27, 2018

BD Venture Limited, Dhaka's one of the active venture capital firms, has launched a crowdfunding platform for connecting entrepreneurs and investors. The platform, aptly named, aims to help entrepreneurs, mostly SMEs and startups, to raise small-scale investment from a large number of passionate small investors.

BD Venture has been working on the platform for a while now. It has also been working closely with the regulator to put together a regulatory structure for crowdfunding in Bangladesh. Although crowdfunding is a popular funding mechanism in many parts of the world for a variety of purposes starting from funding studies to small art projects to raising serious capital for startups, Bangladesh doesn’t have a guideline for such funding mechanism, which limits opportunities for many entrepreneurs and passionate small investors. With the launch of FundSME, this door is likely to open for the entrepreneurs.
