Elance Lands In Bangladesh With Camera In Hand, Jobs In Tow.

Elance is thrilled to be in Dhaka this week, kicking-off our exciting new operations in Bangladesh.

Elance in Bangladesh

While we’re in Dhaka we’ll also take part in several Elance events and government-sponsored happenings. Each activity this week has an eye towards helping boost economic development for the talented people in this deserving region.

The festivities began with a bang on Wednesday, where Elance sponsored our own Work Differently Summit 2012. More than 200 eager Elancers and future Elancers were on hand as we swapped stories and shared insights. It was great connecting with local professionals, as the pictures here show.

On hand for the summit and spearheading activities was Elance’s most-recent hire, Saidur Khan. Our new local Business Development Manager, he’ll be based in Dhaka and help us grow the Bangladesh community even faster. Also of note attending from Elance were Kjetil Olsen (VP, Europe) and Alex Yoon (U.S. Director of Marketing and Talent).

More events are also on the docket this week, including a special event with the Prime Minister of Bangladesh – plus several Elance presentations throughout the week. The grand finale is Friday’s Digital World Event where Elance will be speaking to thousands of visitors. There will also be a live TV broadcast of the event, so if you have a really-really-really good cable TV package check it out.

Dear Sir
It is a pride that elance has landed in Bangladesh. We will be taking all advantages with elance. It would be highly appreciated if there is some free training for the free lancers specially the new ones in Dhaka. It is very difficult and it is almost impossible to get the first job from Elance,
Elance’s most-recent hire, Saidur Khan the new local Business Development Manager,is warmly welcome in Dhaka

Sure why not Pakistan for it is at #3 as service providers on Elance platform.

Very nice event. I wish I was there... But I am hopeful that I can attend it in my own country. Pakistan is waiting for you Elance. A major contributor in freelancing industry..

Wow, this is nice to hear. Does elance already have an office in India? If so where is it? If not we would be interested in setting up business development activities for elance in North East India with so many people from this region willing to sign up on elance as providers. There is a massive work force here. They just need the guidance on how to leverage themselves. Thanks Navin.
