Starting his Journey
Md. Shahzalal has become an entrepreneur while studying. Shahjalal is pursuing a master’s degree in computer science and engineering at Jessore University of Science and Technology (JUST). When Jessore Sheikh Hasina Software Technology Park was inaugurated last year, she allotted 1,140 square feet of space there. He started a software company called Technosoft Global Ltd. At present, 18 young people are employed in his organization, all of whom are undergraduate and postgraduate students. In 2015, Shahzalal graduated in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from a private university in Dhaka. Then he decided to build his career in the IT sector. Open an e-commerce site and start selling products. The journey of Technosoft Global Ltd also started then.
Md. Shahzalal said, “When Sheikh Hasina Software Technology Park is inaugurated in Jessore, we will bring Dhaka’s TechnoSoft to Jessore.” 15 lakh has been invested in this company till now. At present his organization deals with software development, networking and data. Azharul Islam is working as a programmer in this organization. He is a graduate of Government Michael Madhusudan (MM) College, Jessore. Azharul said, “I am interested in working with software. I want to build a career in this sector. So I never tried for a government job. Nazmus Shakib, a fourth-year student at Jessore University of Science and Technology, is working on networking and systems at TechnoSoft. “I am finishing extra university courses with the money from this job,” he said.
Md. Shahjalal is the son of Benapole, a port city in Jessore’s Sharsha upazila. None of the school teachers, parents and other family members wanted the boy to do business. But later he was able to convince everyone. He said that the first obstacle for young people to become entrepreneurs comes from their families. So the first challenge for a young entrepreneur is to convince the family. Again, officially, young entrepreneurs are not getting the necessary patronage. There are various obstacles step by step. The government should take action by identifying exactly where a young entrepreneur needs help. Without identifying the problems, unplanned spending of crores of rupees will not work.
