Founded in 2007, Bangladesh Youth Enterprise Advice and Help Centre (BYEAH), a not-for-profit and non-political organization, has been a pioneer in promoting youth entrepreneurship in Bangladesh. B’YEAH harnesses the strong entrepreneurial culture of Bangladeshi youth, especially the disadvantaged youth and women, by providing the business incubation and accelerator support required to fully explore their innovative potential.
We are also part of Youth Business International (YBI), a global network of almost 50 entrepreneurship support organisations from over 40 countries around the world. Members are connected and supported by a dedicated network team based in London, United Kingdom. Due to the vast YBI network, we are uniquely positioned to bring in tried and tested solutions from around the globe and localize them as per community needs.
BYEAH was founded by Abdul Muyeed Chowdhury (retired Bangladeshi bureaucrat and former adviser, with the rank of minister of the 2001 caretaker government, Founder Chair of the SME Foundation) with the support of other public and private sector leaders committed to fostering sustainable youth entrepreneurship in Bangladesh. Mr. Chowdhury remains very active in leading the Executive Committee to deliver on the organisation’s founding mission and mandate.
