Innovation continues to be one of the key drivers in the digital age and technology. With the ongoing pandemic, innovation has proven to be an essential trajectory for brands and businesses as they adapt and overcome the challenges through novel solutions. For Bangladesh, Innovation remains crucially important for 2 reasons:

  1. For Bangladesh, a quantum leap forward in every arena is needed to realize our vision of becoming a developed nation
  2. A technological revolution holds substantial opportunities for Bangladesh to elevate itself both economically and socially

Therefore, innovation needs to take centre stage in our approach and thinking regarding everything that we do. In keeping with the line of thought, Bangladesh Innovation Conclave put together the 1st Bangladesh Innovation Award in 2018.

The Bangladesh Innovation Award has been conceived to recognize the community of innovators – be it entrepreneurs, start-ups, or established organizations – and their ground breaking innovations. The accolade also aims to inculcate and inspire an innovative and creative mindset within local industries to take Bangladesh forward.

Now in its 3rd iteration, the Bangladesh Innovation Award 2021 has officially started collecting nominations from January 17, 2021.

Nominees in the Bangladesh Innovations Award will be subject to a strict evaluation process by peers and leaders from business, civic, and academic communities. Ground-breaking innovations that pioneer newer possibilities and scope for the market – products, services, or processes – will be evaluated and measured on their originality, market impact, socio-economic influence, disruptive capabilities and introduction of newer effects on the status quo.
