The 2021 Edition of The Active Investors In The Bangladesh Startup Ecosystem

We’re excited to unveil our first and the 2021 edition of The Active Investors in Bangladesh Startup Ecosystem list — our annual composite list of VC, institutional, and angel/individual investors who made at least one investment in a Bangladeshi startup. Some of these data points come from our internal reporting and database. Others come from sources like Crunchbase and regular media coverage of Bangladeshi startups. 

The purpose of making the list is to make it easier to find relevant investors who take interest in the Bangladesh startup ecosystem. One can use the list for various purposes such as looking for investors for a round, landing a VC job, or building a network. It is not a ranking and the names are not in any particular order. 

We don’t have a rigorous methodology for putting together the list yet. This is an experiment. However, we plan to build a proper methodology for preparing the list as we move forward. The list has venture capital firms, corporate VCs, other institutional investors, angels, and individual investors. 

If you have any questions or see anyone missing, or anything is wrong, or have general feedback on the list please feel free to email us at info@futurestartup.com.
