Brihonnola of IER wins first ever Edupreneurship Idea Quest
Team Brihonnola, who aims to make the third gender population as manpower instead of burden to the society, won the first prize of the Edupreneurship Idea Quest 2017. The competition was organised by Education Entrepreneurs Society, formed by a bunch of enthusiastic students of the Institute of Education and Research, University of Dhaka. Undergraduate students from different universities throughout the country participated wholeheartedly. More than 131 teams competed in three rounds. The first round was online based from where the teachers associated with IER co-curriculum activities committee assessed their ideas and selected 51 teams for the second round. In the second round, these 51 teams presented their ideas in front of our respective judges - honourable faculties of IER and other departments of the University of Dhaka. Thereafter, only 12 teams went to the grand finale, which was held on November 28 at Nawab Ali Chouwdhury senate building, where the participants pitched their ideas with all the details in front of the honourable judges - faculties of IER professor Dr. Mohammad Abdul Maleq, professor Shaymoli Akbar, managing director of FIFO Tech, Towhid Hossain, and chief story teller of "Better Stories BD", Selina Hossain Allen. The top three winners were presented the prizes and seed funds of Tk one lakh, 70,000 and 40,000 respectively to implement their ideas. Honourable vice chancellor, University of Dhaka, professor Dr. Mohammad Aktaruzzaman inaugurated the programme. The chief guest of the event was the chairman, University Grants Commission, professor Abdul Mannan. Here is a short description of the ideas that the teams had presented: Champion Brihonnola (Rubaiya Sharmin and Sadikul Islam) Due to the ignorance of the people of the society the third gender has become a less important population. They are being connected with a lot of harmful deeds which are becoming annoying for the city dwellers. But what if we can turn them into a well earning population? They can add value to our society. Instead of doing other things, they can contribute to our GDP. Team Brihonnola thinks through its venture they can connect every community of society. The name of their project is "Education and proper rights for the Mx (EPRMx)". They will have a learning centre named Brihonnola Learning Centre. The pilot project will start in Dhaka. Team Brihonnola said, “We will give them training, counsel them, train them for ICT. After all these, they will be given initial support to start their own business.” This team will work to create an inclusive society. First runners-up  Science Squad (Mashrur Navid, Mohammad Montasir Arafat, Mohammad Nazim Uddin and Saiful Islam Apu) To keep pace with the current world what we need is the practice of science. But sadly, we are losing the number of students in science. The reason behind this is they cannot get the concept of the topics properly. This is why our dream is to work with science. To present science in front of the school, students, to win over their fear, the Team Science Squad will work hard. Second runners-up  Firebolt (Kazi Ashraful Huq and Saima Mehedi Khan) Every year uncountable students started studying medical and engineering just to fulfill their parents’ and society’s dream. The rest is a very unwanted work life, and it gives birth to another merit loss. Moreover, some parents hire private tutors for their children, in such a way we lose the creativity. To meet the solution of these problems, we are introducing our project "Aspiration". Such kind of digital platform can be the solution for all the ages of the students. “Removing all the hindrances which get in the way of the students’ dream is our ambition,” said Team Firebolt.
