About C-BED Bangladesh

C-BED Bangladesh

Who Benefits?

Training young male and felmale university students from diverse backgrounds enable empowering their business ideas while tackling persistent gender inequalities. These challenges are pre-existing and exacerbating during COVID-19, thus investing in their entrepreneurial and professional potential is more important than ever. 

How do you learn?

The unique approach uses techniques that are flexible, efficient, and low cost, and cover key business skills including marketing, productivity, bookkeeping, costing.

  • Activity-based, flexible learning, such as role-plays, storytelling, and brainstorming
  • Peer-to-peer, learn from each other
  • Local facilitator, no external trainer
  • Explore business improvement opportunities  -> make plans -> take action -> introduce innovation -> measure impact.

What's the expansion of this program?

C-BED program is introduced in Bangladesh for the first time, while C-BED has already been delivered in a dozen countries, including Cambodia, Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam. Expansion of the program to the Bangladeshi community is an exciting step.
