On Wednesday, an award ceremony was held at the Robi corporate office where victors received crests, certificates, and other alluring prizes. More than 1,300 creative concepts were submitted overall as a result of the participants’ overwhelmingly positive responses to the campaign. Priority was given to the creative thinking, technological integration, and problem-solving potential of the ideas in the context of societal or everyday life issues when choosing the best ones. Samihat Taspia Rumaisa won the top award out of the tens of thousands of ideas she submitted for a device that would alert nearby hospitals and police stations when a car accident occurred. The company also declared its intention to invest up to Tk 25 million in R-ventures 3.0, its leading platform for digital entrepreneurship.
