State Minister for Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Division Zunaid Ahmed Palak on Tuesday said a

guardian portal would be set up to create awareness on cyber security and 'Entrepreneur Supply Chain'.  

"A guardian portal would be set up to create awareness on cyber security, creating a future learning ecosystem and an 'Entrepreneur Supply Chain'," he said.  

The state minister was speaking virtually while attending a virtual programme organized by UNDP as the chief guest, a press release said.  

In the programme, a report on Entrepreneur Ecosystem of Bangladesh was presented, the release added.   

The report was jointly published by UNDP, IDB, City Foundation, Startup Bangladesh and Light Castle Partners.  

Palak hoped that the report would be used as a resource to build a sustainable ecosystem with young entrepreneurs in Bangladesh.

He said many parents are not yet aware of the 'Entrepreneur Supply Chain' and they don't even know that the top 10 richest people in the world are technology entrepreneurs.  

"So we will seek the cooperation of UNDP to make them aware in this regard," he added.

Group Regional Manager Mahmud Solaiman also joined the programme virtually.
