Grameenphone (GP) is collaborating with Meta, formerly known as the Facebook company, to organise “Boost Up”, an online business Bootcamp for small and medium-sized enterprises.

This interactive training session will help educate small and medium enterprises (SMEs) on innovative ways to grow their businesses and thrive online. 

Aspiring small business owners who are customers of Grameenphone can register through MyGP app. They can also sign up with Httpool, Meta’s authorized sales partner in Bangladesh.

Registration will be open from 6 October 2022, and the training session will be held on 18 October. Shortlisted participants will be informed about the venue.

“This will enable the businesses to thrive and cater to the evolving lifestyle of customers with efficiency,” said Sajjad Hasib, Chief Marketing Officer of Grameenphone. 

 “Our role as a digital enabler has become imperative in transforming lives, and we will continue our efforts to empower Bangladesh digitally," he added.

During the Bootcamp, trainees will learn how to use digital technologies to expand their online presence and boost their businesses.

Digital solutions, such as Meta Business tools, can also enhance growth and help local entrepreneurs connect with their target groups. 

 “We value our partnership with Grameenphone and look forward to working together to help small businesses in Bangladesh adapt to the evolving digital lifestyle of their customers,” said Jordi Fornies, Meta’s Director of Emerging Markets in the Asia Pacific region.

 “Through our Bootcamp, local entrepreneurs will explore digital tools that can help them expand their reach and cater to the needs of their customers,” Fornies added.
