LightCastle Signs MoU with JAAGO to Strengthen Youth Entrepreneurship in Bangladesh

Bangladesh is uniquely positioned to benefit from the demographic dividend. 47% of its population is between the ages of 18 and 35. This segment of society evidently has the potential to transform Bangladesh and the entire region.

LightCastle Partners and JAAGO Foundation have recently signed an MoU, aiming to strengthen Bangladesh’s youth entrepreneurship landscape and community mobilization. By undertaking research, providing advocacy, and implementing projects, both teams will collectively explore multidimensional avenues of growth. They will leverage each other’s strengths to create scalable and sustainable impacts on the economy.

Mr. Ivdad Ahmed Khan Mojlish, Co-founder & Managing Director, LightCastle Partners, and Mr. Korvi Rakshand, Founder & Executive Director, JAAGO Foundation, signed the agreement on behalf of the parties. Other officials from both organizations were also present during the signing ceremony.
