YY Goshti is a social business incubator that believes in the potential of next generation social entrepreneurs and we empower early stage social entrepreneurs with hands on training, mentoring, office space and access to resources thus they can walk their communities way out of poverty.
YY Goshti exists to create the most robust social entrepreneurial ecosystem in Bangladesh.
While developing some of their own initiatives, the initiators of YY Goshti came to learn of a lot of hardships faced by most of their contemporaries. Inspired by their struggle and Professor Muhammad Yunus's social business principles they went on to launch YY Goshti.
At YY Goshti, we try to amass those who are successful social business entrepreneurs and leaders and those who are about to be.
Our focus right now is to drive social change in the fields of Water, Agriculture, Community and craftsmanship.
Our 6 month long incubation program helps 10 entrepreneurs launch their own social businesses with training, mentorship, office space and access to resources. YY Goshti and EMK Center have joined their forces and are in the lookout for early stage social entrepreneurs in Bangladesh.
We'll be pleased to keep you up to date about new social businesses, events and innovations.
