ABOUT OUR PARTNERSHIP
Association with people
Sponsorship provides Grameenphone the opportunity to engage with the people of Bangladesh. As the largest telecom operator in the country, we understand that direct engagement with people always makes a positive impact on their lives and improves communities. Our sponsorship initiatives are geared to empower people to compete in their respective fields and challenge themselves to improve their circumstances. We sponsor to inspire people to reach the heights of their aspiration and bring out the best from within themselves. We believe a country moves forward when its people go beyond all limitations.
Types of Program We Sponsor
Grameenphone strives to empower societies. We aim to generate a strong bond with the people of Bangladesh through our products and services, particularly through our INTERNET services.
We are enthusiastically associated in a wide range of areas that promote wellbeing and a sense of collectiveness within communities. We also focus on various cultural organizations to align ourselves with important cultural festivals.
Note - We focus on sponsoring programs and events that are aligned with the values of our brand. Hence, the entire selection process of the sponsorship program is quite complex. Grameenphone critically evaluates each proposal to understand whether the event is related to the values and beliefs of the brand.
What We Look For
We believe that Bangladesh will continue to be a fast developing economy. Empowering society is one of the key issues that should be addressed in building up Bangladesh. Knowledge and information, along with connectivity and access to information, will play a pivotal role in the empowerment of rural communities, and enrich their contributory value to the mainstream economy. Our priority to sponsor events that are more aligned with EMPOWERMENT; and building on greater INTERNET awareness and usage a key focus area. In addition, Grameenphone is an INSPIRING brand; we also support COMPETITION, INNOVATION and programs that inspire PATRIOTISM.
