The Bangladesh Investment Development Authority  (BIDA) has launched an innovative campaign across the country to bring out potential entrepreneurs for fostering investments and generating jobs.

Executive Chairman of BIDA Kazi M Aminul Islam gave the information at a press meet while launching the campaign on Wednesday, reports bdnews24.com.

Kazi M Aminul Islam said people irrespective of their educational background can drop their innovation ideas to them if they want to be an entrepreneur.

"A jury board comprising members from the government and private sector as well as successful entrepreneurs will select potential entrepreneurs from those ideas for further training," the BIDA chief added.

At least 24,000 such entrepreneurs will receive month-long extensive training to become an entrepreneur under the Entrepreneurship and Skill Development Project or ESDP.

It is an initiative to implement Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s special drive to make Bangladesh a nation of entrepreneurs and innovation, the BIDA boss said.
