Kathmandu, June 22

Nepal Entrepreneurs Society, an initiative of Ganesh Man Singh Academy, today organised the first instalment of Nepal Start-up Meet, a gathering of start-ups, business houses, policymakers, diplomatic agencies and I/NGOs, where entrepreneurs initiating a start-up can share their ideas and find potential investors.

In today’s event, a total of 23 start-up businesses made their pitch. The start-ups include Metro Tarkari, Sunbridge Nepal, Champak Namuna Home Stay, Mobile in Nepal, AgriCorp, Laureko Khabar, Easy Abroad, Smart Payment System, Pawshome, Monkeyz Trail, Associates Hub, and Kul Techno Lab and Research Centre.

Similarly, Nepali Dhobi, Whpedia, CSELL, Mero Ekchaa, Trail Running Nepal, Find You Food, Safa Luga, VAT13TAX25, Vending Machine Nepal, Upalakshya Eventers, and Competitive Speaking Classes were other start-ups taking part in the event.

Addressing the inaugural session, Nepali Congress leader and Ganesh Man Singh Academy President Nabindra Raj Joshi said the private sector had an important role in the country’s development and that the government should come up with policies to promote the private sector.

Stating that the youths of Nepal had the zeal to succeed, the former minister for industry urged the youths not only to come up with ideas but also think about implementing and materialising those ideas.

Stating that the government’s policies and programmes and annual budget failed to prioritise youths, Joshi said they would organise nationwide events to pile pressure on the government to come up with a start-up policy.

“The government has made prosperity its slogan, but the budget and policies and programmes do not have any clear roadmap to achieve prosperity. It states 500,000 jobs will be created, but it has not stated how,” he said.

Joshi also said they were holding discussions with universities in Nepal on developing programmes on entrepreneurship.

Federation of Nepalese Chambers of Commerce and Industry Senior Vice-president Shekhar Golchha was also present in the event.
