What Global Leaders say about Me!

Allan Connolly Business Strategist & Entrepreneur, Australia

I have seen Asif grow from strength to strength in the Global Entrepreneurship Ecosystem and seen him excel in the many roles he fulfils. He is a natural leader, with a quiet air of confidence which he instils into his colleagues.

Norris Krueger, PhD Expert Entrepreneurship Developer. Senior Subject Matter Expert for Entrepreneurial Ecosystems & Learning, OECD/EU

Most universities build their programs like entrepreneurship and only then do they connect with the community. Asif was the architect of the opposite approach: Build up your entrepreneurial ecosystem with an array of programming and only then figure out how the university can best support them (such as courses). He and his colleague (Beauty Akter) are also gearing up research that, again, is responding to the ecosystem. He has reached out for advice to some amazing people (plus me!) but this was his brainchild. I am very proud to see his success and to see his program win awards at the 2019 Global Entrepreneurship Congress. I look forward to helping more in the future!

Asif is dedicated and very committed to entrepreneurship development in Bangladesh and I am certain the energy he brings will support many entrepreneurs that connect with him. It was an absolute pleasure to get to know Asif during the GEC in Bahrain.
