About DTG

Druk Tshongrig Gatoen | Inspire . Connect . Collaborate

Tshongrig refers to 'intelligent business' and entails a culture of business and entrepreneurship infused with intelligent production and consumption. The global community in general, with its aim for Sustainable Development Goals, and Bhutan in particular, with its pursuit of Gross National Happiness, is earnestly calling for the promotion of intelligent businesses.

Started in 2018, the Druk Tshongrig Gatoen (DTG) is the Bhutan's first festival to promote and celebrate social entrepreneurship, intelligent business and celebrate young Bhutanese entrepreneurs who had the courage to dream big and start their entrepreneurial journey. In addition, the festival brings together entrepreneurship-support organizations from the government stakeholders, civil society organizations, development partners, independent agencies, private companies and most importantly the Bhutanese entrepreneurs to spread the awareness on importance of entrepreneurship for Bhutan for the young minds.

From panel discussions on important issues and opportunities for entrepreneurship in Bhutan to small half-day events across all colleges and technical training institutes in the country, from launch of exciting new initiatives during the weekend to benefit young entrepreneurs to lively 'Sales Pitch' at the market fair in Thimphu, from recognizing the extraordinary achievements of individual entrepreneurs to celebrating all entrepreneurs in Bhutan - the festival also presents a platform for everyone to get inspired, make new connections and foster a culture of collaboration.

Each year, the DTG is led by a team of individuals representing a relevant stakeholders from all sectors that consists of entrepreneurship-support organizations in Bhutan - including the government ministries, civil society organization, development partners, private agencies and independent bodies - that is wholly dedicated to create a platform that will foster collaboration and partnership among the stakeholders.

This year the event is led by the Bhutan Association of Entrepreneur (BAEyul) with support from Ministry of Labour and Human Resources (MoLHR), UNDP Bhutan, Thimphu Tech Park, iHub, iBEST Institute, Druk Host, Institute for Learning Solutions, the Green Road and the Loden Foundation.

Objectives

Building on to the success of these events, the DTG aims to compliment such efforts through the following objectives:

  • INSPIRE

    To introduce the concept of entrepreneurship to young people outside of Thimphu in colleges and technical training institutes and inspire them to consider entrepreneurship as a career choice after graduation. This would be done through established entrepreneurs sharing their entrepreneurial journey that is fun, informative and encouraging.

  • CONNECT

    To provide opportunities for entrepreneurs and entrepreneur-support organizations to connect with others and strengthen entrepreneurship eco-system. A select group of entrepreneurs will stand a chance to promote their products at a market fair and engage with relevant stakeholders.

  • COLLABORATE

    To reinforce linkages for deeper collaboration through the year among entrepreneur-support organizations - including government ministries, civil society organizations, development partners, private companies and independent bodies - contributing to the growth of overall entrepreneurship eco-system in Bhutan.
