Ferdous has had the opportunity to travel throughout much of Bangladesh. He was proud of the beauty and rich history that Bangladesh had to offer and yet found that information about the wonderful places he visited was not readily available. As he got to know various regions of the country and the people who lived there, he felt many would benefit from an increase in tourism, which could help lift their economy. Ferdous started Offroad Bangladesh, a crowd-sourced platform that engages travelers and connects them to destinations throughout Bangladesh and to services provided by locals who live in these areas. In doing so, he hopes this will mean new income sources and give locals access to opportunities that would only be available if they left their communities.
Ferdous Mottakin holds a Bachelors degree in Electronics Engineering from Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, BC. Aside from his love of travel, Ferdous also enjoys checking out new movies and spending time with his 3-year-old son.
