● Message from「S-cube」
It feels great! We are excited to represent Japan in the upcoming Hult Prize Accelerator Program to be held at Hult Castle, London, UK. We look forward to launch our entrepreneurship in Bangladesh. Our target is to set up a social business which will play a significant role in improving the food and health security as well as create employment opportunities for the underprivileged people of Bangladesh. Our dream is to have a global impact by expanding our social business to other underdeveloped countries which are having similar adverse situation like Bangladesh.
