What is an outcome?

At Young Bangladesh, we strive to ensure the creativity and entrepreneurial energy doesn’t stop once delegates leave the summit. Not only are delegates connected to a wide range of YB alumni resources after the Summit — including access to a global network of YB alumni, past facilitators and institutional partners — but delegates also have the chance to receive tangible post-Summit assets and opportunities to further develop their ideas  after the Summit. We call these opportunities Outcomes.

Who is eligible for the outcome opportunities?

All delegates are eligible for the outcome opportunities if they choose to apply.

What happens after the summit?

By taking part in the Summit, you will have access to a YB Alumni Network and resources that tries to support youth-led endeavors. The YB website–in addition to other social networking tools–will provide a gateway to connect with your fellow YB attendees.

What is YB alumni network?

After attending the Summit, you will become a part of the Young Bangladesh Alumni Network. Our Alumni Committee works to keep all delegates connected and engaged for years to come. We host virtual meet-ups and discussions, alumni mixers in domestic and international locations, and connect past delegates to new opportunities for themselves. The Alumni Network is a great way to spread news about your new initiatives, get help from your peers, or simply keep in touch!
