Ataur studied Computer Networking at University of Bedforshire in England but wanted to apply his skills in a meaningful way. Upon returning to Bangladesh in 2009, he worked with minority groups of independent farmers and village producers providing low cost ecommerce services. With a mission to reduce poverty in villages outside of Dhaka, Ataur founded his venture. By setting up needed information and communication technology in these villages and establishing training centers that are run by local youth, Amar Desh Amar Gram puts the power of technology directly into the hands of farmers and their families providing ecommerce training and an online marketplace for them to sell their goods.
Ataur Rahman holds a Bachelors of Science Honors degree from University of Bedfordshire. He enjoys doing research and learning from subject matter experts as well as traveling and spending time with family.
