ABOUT OUR PARTNERSHIP
Association with people
We at Grameenphone perceive sponsorship as an opportunity to engage with the people of Bangladesh and connect with Customers. As the largest telecom operator in the country, we understand that direct engagement with people always makes a positive impact on their lives and improves communities.
Our sponsorship initiatives are designed to be associated with the big local heritage events (events that have been taking place in a locality for a good number of years) or occasions which has an appeal to the mass and also has the appeal at a national level.
Types of Program We Sponsor
We are enthusiastically associated in a wide range of areas that promote wellbeing and a sense of collectiveness within communities through different events throughout the year. These are mainly various important cultural festivals. We would associate with reputable bodies who have an established legacy of arranging events in the locality and creating mass appeal through them at a national scale.
Note - We focus on sponsoring programs and events that are aligned with the values of our brand. Hence, the entire selection process of the sponsorship program is quite rigid. Grameenphone critically evaluates each proposal to understand whether the event is related to the values and beliefs of the brand. We want to contribute to positive development of local sports, culture and society in general.
There is an online application process to apply for sponsorship. You are requested to complete the process and we’ll evaluate the proposal as per our guidelines and provide a feedback within 15 days. Proposals that do not meet our initial criteria will be declined.
