YY Goshti was created in 2016 when we decided to create jobs for ourselves and for our friends, take care of our food and for our families and share whatever resources we had to help our entrepreneurial friends start their own social businesses. We were a bunch of twenty-something fresh graduates who believed in the power of Social Business. In four years, 36 youth from our goshti (family) has created 1,108 jobs and improved the lives of 80,819 Bangladeshis. Now we want to change the lives of a million!
We are the ‘weavers’ of today’s social business world connecting people, groups, or organizations to bring out social change for a better village, community, country, and planet.
Our four month long program is designed by social business leaders and investors to help early stage social entrepreneurs to be ready to launch their minimum viable product and raise the needed seed capital.
