Tasneem is a business administration student working closely with the micro entrepreneurs of the slums in Bangladesh. After experiencing first-hand the effects of the “fast fashion” factories and realizing how informal economy is creating huge barriers to the social and economic inclusion of the disadvantaged, Tasneem founded Synergy, a social enterprise connecting climate refugees and marginalised micro-entrepreneurs of Bangladesh with the global market of slow, ethical fashion through e-commerce. Her start-up was recognized as one of the Top 6 around the world by the HULT Prize Foundation in 2016.
