Invest with Impact to take the entrepreneurship ecosystem forward. We run ecosystem development programs to catalyze small business growth. Our model incorporates market systems approach, technology and empirical analytics. We have developed platforms like Pujee, ThePitchPerfect and TechBeez to accelerate entrepreneurship.

Pujee

We have run an online fintech platform for startups for them to easily use the tool to generate relevant investment advisory financials as part of capital raising. 

The idea was to introduce a tool that will render power of generating financials to literally anyone – regardless of prior knowledge in finance. This platform has a registered user base of 800+, many of whom have successfully used the tool to raise investment for their particular ventures.

Pujee was supported by the EMK Center and has won the Manthan Award.

The Pitch Perfect

We have developed a pitch-tech platform that showcased essential tools to prepare winning pitch decks as part of fundraising. By leveraging this platform, we helped develop capacity of several entrepreneurs, provided seed funding to the winner of the competition and connected the 5 finalists with investors.

Backed by the success, the winning team has so far raised approximately $100,000 from outside investors and is now well on its mission to create a lasting organization in Bangladesh.

Techbeez

In collaboration with the EMK Center, we have conceptualized and run an entrepreneurial platform for Women in STEM in Bangladesh – TechBeez. It is a networking, event and competition platform aimed at connecting aspiring female students in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields with successful and inspiring female leaders in the ICT and digital industry.

By building a bridge between female ICT professionals and female students through networking opportunities, events and competitions, we aimed to inspire further involvement of women in ICT and facilitate the growth of digital Bangladesh.

Our goal was to focus on products/services that worked towards solving some of the most pressing social maladies existent in Bangladesh namely, female harassment & abuse, pregnancy & motherhood, education & literacy, traffic & transportation and healthcare & wellbeing.

Over 200 participants applied, and after rigorous screening, we awarded ~20 aspiring female entrepreneurs for their brilliant ideas.
