Entrepreneurship is all about participation and engagement in the process of building innovation, selling, and reaping profits with bared risks. Women being equal to men kick-starts the role of entrepreneurship in a country. Highly empowered with dedication and backed support of government policies, the frequency of women entrepreneurs is increasing day by day. Startup Chattogram helps women entrepreneurs to thrive and succeed in starting a business and making it succeed. We support startups and founders in general, but we also provide special support for women founders and teams that include women.

We want to be part of the process of making the world a better place for women and therefore for everyone else!

In addition to providing services such as mentorship, funding support to women entrepreneurs, apprenticeship and corporate partnerships, startup Chattogram encourages entrepreneurs to share their entrepreneurial journeys, stories & experiences to nurture mutual learning.

Startup Chattogram platform, as a driver of change, will also promote offline initiatives and outreach programmes to promote entrepreneurial spirit among potential women entrepreneurs, in collaboration with partner organizations.

Also, we offer incubation and acceleration support to women-founded / co-founded startups through its various partners who handhold women entrepreneurs registered with startup Chattagram and provide them with the necessary support to help them start and scale up.

As we all know Chattagram is a progressive city, still the work environment for women entrepreneurs here is a big issue. They are expected to spend more time taking care of their families and children which leaves them with less time and energy to spend on building and growing their businesses. Social expectations are stricter on women than men in this regard in most cultures and societies. That’s why Startup Chattogram provides the best Workplace with free space, internships, and a larger facility to work from home.

Finding the money needed to start a business is challenging for both men and women entrepreneurs, but women are proving to be facing even more challenges in this area.

Startup Chattogram helps in raising capital for female-owned businesses by introducing them to angel investors and VCs through its programmes. 

In some business networking events, you can count women attendees on the one hand. Not having access to a network of businessmen and businesswomen who can support your business might be just another challenge for female founders.
