As COVID-19 raged on and unable to sustain further, Sayem pulled the trigger and decided to lay off a vast majority of his team in his previous company. This was a team built and nurtured by him for over 5 years. That’s when Sayem decided to build something that gives people jobs, not takes it away.
Coincidentally, when Sayem met Rashed, both of them realized that they share the same passion to build a utopian world where access to opportunity is universal. As they dived deeper, both of them realized that this was not a local but an acute global problem. With encouragement from their local startup ecosystem, the duo are now taking on the challenge to build the bridge that’ll connect employers to one of the largest untapped talent pools in South Asia.
