11th Startup Huddle Dhaka session held last October 24 at Daffodil Business Incubator from 11:00 am-12:30 pm. On this day, Mr. Abu Anas Shuvom who is the Founder and CEO of the startup Sigmind were given 20-minutes to discuss their startup and another 10 minutes for the question and answer.

Mr. Anas has been walked in the path of entrepreneurship in association with Connecting Startups Bangladesh 2016 with the company he founded named SIGMIND. In his entrepreneurship career, he has received numerous awards including Startup Bangladesh Award 2017, 2nd runner up in BASIS National ICT Award 2017 and Champion on BASIS National ICT Award 2019 in the Startup category. Moreover, he has also participated in some local and international startup competitions including Startup Istanbul and Entrepreneurship World Cup where his team received honorable positions.

Startup Huddle is a program designed to help one entrepreneur at a time while strengthening the local ecosystem.

Entrepreneurs discover solutions to the challenges they face through purposeful engagement with a broad array of voices from their local community. The Startup Huddle format is consistent in each location: at a consistent meeting place, one or two early-stage startup founders give a six-minute presentation about their company to a diverse audience from their local community. Each presentation is followed by a 20-minute question and answer session where the community provides ideas, connections, and feedback for the entrepreneur.

By providing a monthly meet up for the local ecosystem, Startup Huddle Dhaka builds community – one entrepreneur at a time.
