We’ve dedicated three decades to igniting the entrepreneurial spirit, providing start-up capital, mentorship, networking, and essential business services that have been instrumental in shaping a resilient and innovative economic landscape.

Our journey has been marked by countless success stories of individuals who brought their brilliant ideas to life through our platform. Each story underscores our commitment to empowering entrepreneurs, not just by funding businesses, but by nurturing growth, innovation, and sustainable development.

Join us in commemorating 30 years of excellence and in shaping the decades of success yet to come. Happy Anniversary, BYBT — here’s to building dreams, creating opportunities, and empowering entrepreneurs for generations to come!
