B’Yeah: A member of the Global network of YBI (Youth Business International)
Youth Business International has set up several youth business initiatives to help young people to start and grow their own business and create employment. YBI was founded as a joint venture of The Prince of Wales International Business Leaders Forum (IBLF) and The Prince’s Trust. It works in partnership with trusts, foundations and a variety of franchise partners to enable the business community to promote youth entrepreneurship. This is achieved through a global network of business support, mentoring and access to start-up finance.
B’Yeah joined the YBI Global network in 2009 and committed to organising accessible financial support, mentoring and training to those who have a viable business idea but are unable to find necessary help.
Working area: B’Yeah’s activities currently focus on young people living in Dhaka and its suburbs. However, it aims to expand its outreach to district areas as well.
