Traffic jam, poor road condition, improper waste management, contaminated air, lack of pure drinking water, crime, sexual harassment of women, lack of quality education, inadequate knowledge on different health related issues & many other problems can be seen in the lives of city-dwellers. The problems have evolved a lot in the recent years, indicating that some revolutionary, innovative solutions are badly needed to solve them instead of the age-old strategies. And here comes the power of youth, the power that knows how to deal with the changes & what should be the up-to-date strategies to alleviate the problems affecting millions of lives.
Having this challenging scenario ahead, YSI Bangladesh started its 4 month-long incubation program called ‘Megapreneurs’. Megapreneurs are entrepreneurs who are working with their startups to solve different sustainability challenges of megacities & creating measurable impacts to the lives of millions. Here, the top innovative minds from all over Bangladesh get the opportunity to go through a world class innovation curriculum, take their brilliant ideas from scratch to startup, meet the experts from relevant sectors & get funding from investors.
