Bannu District (Pashto: بنو ولسوالۍ‎, Urdu: ضِلع بنوں‎) is a district in Bannu Division of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in Pakistan. It was recorded as a district in 1861 during the British Raj.[2]: 3 It is one of 26 districts that make up the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. It borders North Waziristan to the northwest, Karak to the northeast, Lakki Marwat to the southeast, and South Waziristan to the southwest.

The major industries of Bannu are cloth weaving, sugar mills, and the manufacturing of cotton fabrics, machinery, and equipment. It is famous for its weekly Jumma fair. The district forms a basin drained by the Kurram and Gambila (or Tochi) rivers, which originate in the hills of Waziristan. Although Bannu is surrounded by rugged and dry mountains, it is a fertile place, and early English visitors had been known to refer to it as a "paradise" – see the beautiful description by Edwardes quoted by Thornton.

 the People and youth of Bannu is very passionate and dedicated youth and desperately want to do something for there motherland but unfortunately, they lack platform and opportunity through which they can show can their real hidden talent and showcase it to the world so therefor I have launched this startup grind Bannu chapter which can play a pivotal role in polishing the young and energetic youth of Bannu and showcase their real talent through this prestigious platform.
