DIU hosts Canadian Prestigious SBC Competition in Bangladesh

There are very few people who firmly believe that Bangladesh has huge possibilities of development. On the contrary there are huge populations who think that nothing more will happen to this country. Many are immigrating to other countries like Canada, Australia or America. The person, who rides in the chariot of capitalism all the time in the constant pursuit of individualism and selfishness, seeks only ‘profit’ is another person living in the inner world of a person who has altruism, selflessness in his mind.  If we look around, we find people devoting themselves for the betterment of others. This altruistic, desire for the welfare of others is the name of a business that captures the heart of the people which is called ‘Social Business’. We’re all likely aware of the highly publicized successes in the social enterprise movement. From this mission to change the world, some pioneers have tilled the ground for a new class of equally exciting conscious sectors that are making bold change in the name of good. The combination of business with social issues has gained momentum in the last decade, and we are witnessing more and more startups that are recognizing social problems and finding ways to tackle them. Although social entrepreneurship is mainly driven by societal needs, there are a number of success stories which prove that one can do specious and make money at the same time.
