Three new startups have been selected in Bangladesh Round of SLUSH 2017 Global Impact Accelerator, Europe’s largest event on technology based new startups. The result of this contest got declared in a program held at Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Division on August 8, 2017. The top three startups are SARG Engineering, BINO App and Jolpai Electronics.
Chief Guest of the program ICT State Minister Zuni Ahmed Palak said-Contestants can share knowledge besides gaining experiences in such global competition. As per our research, most of the startups get collapsed at the initial stage or little bit later due to the lacking of initial investment. So, for such startups, ICT Division is now providing innovation funds of different amount in different extents.
113 startups applied for the Bangladesh category and among them 38 startups were selected initially. M-Lab Bangladesh, a sister concern of MCC Limited, has organized this event in Bangladesh and White Board was the co-organizer.
Members of these winning startups will present their projects before the judges of SLUSH. Henceforth, it will be finalized who are going to take part in the final round of SLUSH to be held by the end of this year.
