Background

Bangladesh, the land of opportunity, considered as a developing economy where the current population of Bangladesh exceeds 160 million, with almost 50% of them below the age of 35 years constituting a large young workforce. A large portion of this population is embassies, innovators and by naturally developed with entrepreneurial skill with innovation and ideas. Proper expose & guideline, investment networking, government and non-government support for these innovators and innovation can create a positive impact on socio economic development of Bangladesh.

Bangladesh considered as the ‘Asian Tiger Economy’, ranked as the 37th largest economy in the world in 2012 in PPP terms. More than half of the GDP is generated by the service sector. In the last decade, the country has recorded GDP growth rates above 6 percent due to development of microcredit and garments industry. Although three fifths of Bangladeshis are employed in the agriculture sector, three quarters of exports revenues come from producing ready-made garments but the most prospective area of remittance of next decade is outsourcing. Countries economy has grown at the rate of 6-7% per annum over the past few years and the proper activation, training and utilization of country’s population in outsourcing sector may increase that growth rate 15%-17% which could be 1/3rd of our national budget only from IT/ITES, and BPO outsourcing sector by 2020.

In order to achieve the target of middle income country and to earn 1/3rd of national budget by increasing remittance from IT/ITES outsourcing,we thought it is high time for our country’s economic development to organize a “Freelancer Meet 2015”where learners and professionals can meet together and share their skills and valuable information. Presently more than5 lakhs freelancers are working and earning USD 500 million per year.Everyday new people are entering into the outsourcing market but many of them don’t have sufficient knowledge and skills. As a result they face numerous kinds of problems. In addition, some unscrupulous people have defrauded these newly joined freelancers by wrangling them in many Ponzi schemes, which ultimately have serious consequences and impact on outsourcing fields.  With this reality in mind, Daffodil, the largest ICT and educational conglomerate of the country has initiated to develop a strong outsourcing platform by training and nurturing 1,000,000 young and enthusiastic people.Organizing“Freelancer Meet 2015” is the first big step of this platform. Under that platform,“Freelancer Meet 2015” is the Gateway to develop our young generation as freelancers and transforming them to entrepreneurs.
