3G-equipped Google Bus aims to help 500,000 Bangladesh students start businesses


Google has begun a year-long tour of Bangladesh in a 3G-equipped bus which will visit over 500 campuses in order to introduce half a million students to web tools that can help them start and grow a business.

The specially retrofitted bus with 3G Internet will hopefully help give half a million undergraduates a better sense of the power and utility of the Internet, and show them how to plan and collaborate in new ways […]

We hope this program equips the country’s next generation of entrepreneurs with the digital tools that will empower them to start and grow their own projects and businesses online.

Students who want the Google Bus to visit their school or college can make a request on the project’s Google+ page.
