Youth School for Social Entrepreneurs (YSSE), a youth-led non- profit organization, has organized “Bangladesh Youth Symposium 2018” in association with “Textile Engineering Department” on the premises of Green University of Bangladesh (GUB). Prominent economist and former governor of Bangladesh Bank, Dr. Atiur Rahman was the Chief Guest of the event where Founder & CEO of Textile Today, Tareq Amin spoke at the program as a resource person.
The speakers at the program engaged with future entrepreneurs to inspire them to work in the social entrepreneurship arena. An “Elevator Pitch Challenge” was arranged to encourage the audience to engage more.
The sessions had been arranged particularly for the youth society to let them have a clear understanding of the basic requirements of entrepreneurship, the strategies to follow while starting own venture, the tactics to market a new product/service in the market and the hurdles an entrepreneur faces in his/her path of success. “Engaging youth in entrepreneurship and make them aware about the advantages and solutions of obstacles of self- employment”- was the theme of the event.
Nowadays, everybody thrives to be established without putting the time or the effort that is required. However, you must remember this: no pursuit can be successful without hard work and persistence.
The resource person Tareq Amin gave his valuable speech where he appreciated the initiative and highlighted the significance of social entrepreneurship to bring a bigger change in the society.
He expressed his wise words, “Nowadays, everybody thrives to be established without putting the time or the effort that is required. However, you must remember this: no pursuit can be successful without hard work and persistence. To build your own business, you have to do your work with persistence.”
“Do not run after money at the beginning, just follow your strength and work on it; and these will lead you to become a renowned entrepreneur and successful person,” he concluded.
