Our 6 month long incubation program helps 10 entrepreneurs launch their own social businesses with training, mentorship, office space and access to resources. The core of our model is to let the entrepreneurs generate sustainable solutions of the problems that they or their community is facing inspired by the ‘’The Lean Startup concept’’ and ‘Professor Yunus’s Social Business Principles” in Bangladesh.
Jump in and start molding your idea into a practical social solution that will put people life at ease in your community.
The program is best suited to entrepreneurs that have identified a solution to a social problem and are looking forward to start up.
The program is geared towards those at an early stage of development, who have an idea they are willing to invest in. Ideally applicants have completed some measure of feasibility assessment, built a prototype and can see themselves moving to launch in 4-6 months.
Our program is primarily designed for the needs of social businesses; however non-profits, for-profits, co-operatives, and community contribution businesses are all eligible as long as they serve the purpose and they incorporate a sustainable revenue model.
The social innovators who drive change in community, are always admired at YY Goshti. But for every Muhammad Yunus, there’s a team at the back to pull the whole thing off. Most of the successful applicants at YY Goshti has a couple of full time dedicated individuals.
Since 2016, 30+ social entrepreneurs went through our incubation program. Let's hear from some of our best entrepreneurs about their experience with YY Goshti.
