Oikko Books, an online book shop, started its journey in the month of language. It was launched as an affiliated venture of Oiiko Foundation, the largest platform of Bangladesh’s CMSME entrepreneurs, when the Amar Ekushey Boimela was undergoing.
The management of the Oikko Foundation, a non-profit organisation, said that their new venture Oikko Books was launched upholding the spirit and strength of Amar Ekushey being carried out by the nation years after years.
The Oikko Foundation has been working as a platform for CMSME entrepreneurs. It has several ventures to present their activities as well as the development of them. Oikko Books is part of the continued bids of the Foundation.
The inaugural ceremony of Oikko Books was attended by publisher Monirul Haque of Ananya, Oikko Foundation Directors Suraiya Alam, Jannatul Ferdous Tithy and Tanvir Ahmed Tanim as well as other team members.
Welcoming the book-venture, publisher Monirul Haque said: the bid to reach books at the readers’ hands at their homes is really praiseworthy specially in the current situation.
Suraiya Alam said that Oikko Foundation always tries for the welfare of the entrepreneurs and goes for new ventures. “Oikko Books is part of that mission and now it is operational,” she said.
Jannatul Ferdous Tithy informed that books of all writers and publishers will be available in Oikko Books although the beginning took place only with Ananya books.
Tanvir Ahmed Tanim said: We are delighted to think that from now on we will also work with books. With this, the Oikko Foundation will touch a new milestone,” he hoped.
As a non-profit organisation, Oikko Foundation has been acting relentlessly to build an identity of prominence for the CMSME entrepreneurs of Bangladesh. Its ventures included Oikko Online Shopping, Oikko Health, Oikko SME Digital Institute, Oikko Records and Visuals and Oikko Barta.
