EMPEA had the opportunity to speak with EMPEA Member, Mounir Guen, CEO of MVision Private Equity Advisers, and Harmony Ventures’ founders Yassamin Issapour and Aymeric Pacton about the winner of a Dhaka Start-up Competition, MyDoctor, a micro health insurance program which uses garbage as a financial resource to create clinics staffed by local doctors and medical students to treat and support people in the Bangladesh community. Harmony Ventures’ Inaugural Dhaka Start-up Competition was held in Spring 2016 with the intention to provide ‘young entrepreneurs with mentorship, resources and funding to develop their social enterprises in Bangladesh.’ The nine-month long competition gathered over 250 applicants and featured nine finalists who pitched their sustainable development business model ideas to a panel of local and international expert judges.
