PowerGroup BD: Just after our graduation from AUST in CSE, we think not to do any job, but to do something of our own So that we can earn and serve our country too. So the journey of Power GP BD Limited began on February 13, 2012.
Then the technology of Smart Phone Application Development was upstream and BASIS started a course of ‘Android Application Development’. As a result of being interested in this platform, we started developing Android Applications. We didn’t have any office then. We used to work at any of ours home. We found out about the Google Play Store and opened an account there. Published an Application just for fun. We still didn’t know why we did so! After some days we saw, we started earning from Google Play Store from the application we uploaded there. We got excited and took it seriously. Then we developed some more applications. We felt the need of an Office and took the risk for it. We hired an office at Mohakhali DOHS and this is how the journey of Power GP BD Limited started.
