কেন সব ব্যবসা স্টার্টআপ নয়? (Why is every business not a startup?)


Startup has been a popular word among the youth of Bangladesh recently There used to be a time when most teens would have a goal of finishing their studies and getting a job Nowadays most have a dream of building their own startup What is startup? Let’s find an answer on startup for your curious mind Lexically, startup means a new business initiative or project It’s an initiative where new ideas are formed with technology to solve a pre-existing issue with something unique Thus, serving a large number of people with services or products But because the solution is rather unique, its success is not guaranteed The initiators or the organization themselves fund the primary stages of a startup Although, there’s no regulation of differenciating startups regarding earnings and employment But there are some characteristics that we can notice when it comes to startups The difference between a startup and a small business is the probability of it growing, aka its scale-up Though due to funds and investments, startups should be started from a small base But every startup has a goal of reaching success For example: Suppose you opened a restaurant in you area This is a business Because you can spread it by only a limited form Whereas, food delivery services like Hungrynaki are startups Because the possibilities and factors of it spreading is very large Thus we can say: Every startup is a business, but not every business is a startup Over the last few years, the ground for developing startups in Bangladesh has grown quite a lot New startups are rising constantly to tackle many issues this country has right now We have already seen a bunch of startups to gain success Such as, Pathao Pathao has made ride sharing a very popular medium of transportation, in a busy city like Dhaka, to tackle traffic issues After many domestic and international investments, its price is now about 100 million Dollars or 820 crore takas Bangladeshi startup initiators have to face some common problems One of the main being, lack of skilled manpower Besides, the people in the education and art fields of this country haven’t developed an attitude of inventing something new The social perspective about startups haven’t changed either Then there’s the unwillingness of banks to invest in startups But hopefully Many government and non-government initiatives have been taken to create a favorable environments for startups Some of which are: ICT department’s Innovation Fund, A2i innovation fund and the recently found Idea Project which has a target of funding 200 startups Besides these, many non-government incubators and accelerators have been developed A notable one is, Grameenphone’s GP Accelerator So we can hope that Maybe in the near future, startups like Facebook, AirBnb and Whatsapp would be rising from our country To answer your questions alike, quizards has created many amusing videos To know and see more, subscribe to the Quizards channel Stay curious, and stay with Quizards

  1. But what about restaurants or chains like Burger King? Like they also have the prospect to grow bigger with time.

  2. যট্টুক বুঝতে পারছি, একটা স্টার্টাপ তো সেক্ষেত্রে টেম্পোরারি হবার কথা। কারণ একটা ছোট ব্যবসা সেটার লক্ষ্য বজায় রেখে চলে সেটার ফান্ডিং স্টেডি রেখে, কিন্তু একটা স্টার্টাপ তো সেটার ফান্ডিং এর পর একবার এস্টাব্লিশড হয়ে গেলে একটা পূর্ণাঙ্গ ব্যবসায় রূপান্তরিত হতে পারে (যদি সফল হয় আরকি)। তাই নয় কি?

  3. এই টাইপ ভিডিও ক্রিয়েটরাই কিন্তু আমাদের বাংলাদেশের ফিউচার। 
    ইউটিউবার মানেই ফানি ভিডিও ক্রিয়েটর এই ধারনা দূর করতে হবে। ভিডিও বানানো মানেই ফানি ভিডিও বানাতে হবে এমন ধারনাও দূর করা লাগবে। আমাদের দেশে এখন প্রচুর এডুকেশনাল ভিডিও ক্রিয়েটর দরকার।

    বাংলাদেশের মানুষেরা আমরা যে পরিমাণে ভুল তথ্যে বিশ্বাসী আর নির্ভরশীল তাঁদের জন্য কিন্তু ফানি ভিডিওর চাইতে এই Quizards চ্যানেলের ভিডিওগুলা এখন বেশি দরকার।

    আজকের এই ছোট ছোট Edutainment ভিডিও ক্রিয়েটররাই কিন্তু একদিন বাংলাদেশে বিশাল একটা ইতিবাচক বৈপ্লবিক পরিবর্তন নিয়ে আসবে। যেমনটা করেছে Robi 10 Minute School. টেন মিনিট স্কুলও কিন্তু একদিন এমন ছোট পরিসরেই ছিল।
