The project Amar Desh Amar Gram creates a virtual marketplace named as Amar Desh eSHOP for better economic opportunities for the farm producer rural communities of Bangladesh.
Everyday villagers come with their products (anything they produce even if it is just a gourd) and catalogue it on the internet at the e-Centre. A city buyer, may be hundreds of miles away, glances through the catalogue and places an order with an electronic card. In less than two days the person receives the product which otherwise may be available at a higher price from the city markets. Back in the village, the producer receives a fair price as the money gets electronically transferred through a highly secured e-commerce payment gateway to the producer’s bank account upon delivery. The project Amar Desh Amar Gram is broadly categorized and run under three main programs, namely Amar Desh eSHOP (online platform for rural trade), eDesh (country wide web portal) & Ami Hobo Shonirbhor ( ICT training for rural Development).

The web-based initiative CoCubes.com, developed by venture funded firm based in Gurgaon (India), connects colleges and companies online for campus recruitment.
The word CoCubes derives its origin from the first two alphabets of the three words i.e. connecting, colleges & companies. With the help of CoCubes.com., companies can create a job post and make it available to all or select colleges, based on a region, or set eligibility criteria like marks, branch, certifications etc. The job post, when viewed by the Training and Placement Officer (TPO) of any particular college, can either be passed on to the students (by accepting it) or denied (by rejecting it). If accepted, eligible students get to see and respond to the job post. Companies can then interact with applied students through SMS and notifications sending tips, reminders and other details.
