Day one of the Women Entrepreneurs’ Expo has been truly extraordinary!

July 4, 20240

Organized by the Centre for Entrepreneurship Development (CED), BRAC University, with the generous support of the U.S. Embassy Dhaka; the first edition of the Women Entrepreneurs’ Expo, exclusively for Academy for Women Entrepreneurs (AWE) alumni in Bangladesh, was launched at the BRACU Auditorium Lobby on 3 July 2024. 🌟

Mr. Bren Flanigan (Acting Director for Public Engagement, US Embassy Dhaka), along with Dr. Dave Dowland (Registrar, BRAC University), inaugurated the expo and graced the event, visiting each stall and engaging with the entrepreneurs about their ventures and visions.

The expo proudly showcased vibrant products from the talented AWE participants, including cosmetics, handicrafts, gourmet food items, exquisite leather products, stylish clothing, captivating paintings, eco-friendly products, and much more. 🎨👜🍲👗

Thirty-five women entrepreneurs from across Bangladesh, including Sylhet, Khagrachari, Gaibandha, Chattogram, and Dhaka, have presented their innovative products and services. CED has trained 140 women entrepreneurs nationwide through AWE (Cohort 1 & 2). 🌍💡

AWE, a global initiative by the U.S. Department of State, empowers aspiring women entrepreneurs with essential knowledge, robust professional networks, and vital resources crucial for launching and scaling successful businesses. 💼📚

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Bren and the U.S. Embassy Dhaka for their kind support of both the expo and AWE. 🤝

Day two (the last day!) promises to be even more exciting. We look forward to seeing you at the Expo tomorrow! 🎊
