We help ULABians create impact at scale.

ULAB Social and Green Incubator (US&GI) is a joint initiative of University of Liberal Arts, Bangladesh (ULAB) and Bangladesh Youth Enterprise Advice & Helpcentre (BYEAH) to run 4-month incubation program for early-stage founders who possess the discipline and a revolutionary idea to solve the most pressing community problems. Our program is tailor-made to support teams who have the potential to uniquely solve their specific problem, but require access to the essential skills, tools, mindset, networks, and resources to take their solution from minimum viability to product-market fit.

At ULAB Social and Green Incubator, we believe in nurturing the future leaders and innovators who will bring about significant positive change in their communities. We are confident in our ability to empower and equip our participating teams with the tools they need to succeed in their mission to make Bangladesh a better place.

The Process

At US&GI, we are excited to offer an incubation program that is built upon the Social and Green Entrepreneurship Toolkit of Youth Business International (YBI). As an exclusive network member BYEAH has got exclusive access to the toolkit, and our participating teams can also benefit from this comprehensive toolkit, which is specifically designed for young founders looking to launch or enhance their work with social and green entrepreneurs. The toolkit is ideal for trainers, coaches, and mentors who wish to adapt their existing content and activities to meet the unique needs of social and green entrepreneurs.

Our program is built on three critical pillars:

  • Personal Development
  • Business Development,
  • and Enabling Environment.

Through the implementation of the toolkit, we provide our participating teams with the support they need to strengthen their solution design, become sustainable and scalable, and achieve their full impact potential. Our team of experts is committed to guiding and empowering our founders every step of the way, providing with the tools, resources, and connections you need to succeed.
