Hive, Flat A6, House 2 Road 7, Dhanmondi, Dhaka, 1207

I had wanted to have a career in finance since I was 16 and honestly speaking I loved slogging out 18 hours a day during my investment banking days and as a matter of fact I think I will still do it for the love and passion I hold for that field but I decided to leave that behind. I wanted to control my own destiny and make a difference.

About this event

Born to a father of financial services businesses, the entrepreneurship ideology has always been appreciated in the family and since childhood I started developing a keen interest in mathematics and quantitative analysis.

After finishing my undergraduate studies, I went to the US to pursue a career in investment banking and the last more than half a decade consisted of fun rides in private equity, venture capital and lastly in mergers and acquisitions in Silicon Valley.

So in fall 2015, I decided to leave my investment banking career behind and wanted to control my own destiny and make a difference.

The first step was starting Hive, a co-working space catering to the needs of the growing and enthusiastic startups, entrepreneurs and freelancers. We wanted to be more than just a place offering work-spaces and with the motive of creating a community and networking we started having our full-engineering team including full-stack developers, front-end designers, product managers, digital marketers etc for not only developing our own proprietary technology but also to benefit our members.
