Because of this, everything is changing in the world. It is also affecting Bangladesh. We believe that only promising young entrepreneurs can manage everything in the country in the coming days using this new and powerful technology. I would like to inform these young entrepreneurs of 25-30 years about these technologies well. So that they can lead the trend of new cutting-edge technology. The technological skills they have, so that they get an opportunity to speak on a platform. At the same time, people like us who have been working as entrepreneurs in IT for a long time, can share our work experience. We are organizing this conference to share our experiences and skills between the two generations.

What should the budget plan for these young entrepreneurs, there is no alternative to financial support to advance their businesses.  If they can't keep up with the current technology trends and move their business forward, future entrepreneurs may face the impact of artificial intelligence. As entrepreneurs of old companies, we have reached a stage. Young entrepreneurs need to be financially supported to take their companies to the next level.
