DARE TO STAND BIG
The Bangabandhu Innovation Grant (BIG) platform was launched in 2019 to honor the legacy of the Father of the Nation, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and inspire a new generation of entrepreneurs in Bangladesh. The platform provides grants, mentorship, and networking opportunities to startups and entrepreneurs across all sectors, promoting diversity and inclusivity. BIG is organized by the Innovation Design and Entrepreneurship Academy (iDEA) project of the Bangladesh Computer Council (BCC) of the ICT Division of the Government of the People's Republic of Bangladesh.
Following successful completion in 2019 and 2021, the iDEA Project is organizing BIG 2023 for the third time in Bangladesh, with the program's slogan this year being "DARE TO STAND BIG.”
The top one startup will receive BDT 1,00,00,000 as BIG Grant, and the remaining 50 startups will be awarded BDT 10,00,000 as a grant from the iDEA Project. A total of 6 crores BDT will be awarded to the startups through BIG 2023, along with investment opportunities, mentoring and other facilities.
BIG aims to empower entrepreneurs and startups to dream big and take bold steps towards achieving their goals and creating a positive impact on society, in line with Bangabandhu's vision for a prosperous, innovative and smart Bangladesh.
