In the last couple of years, Nepal has been making significant progress in its entrepreneurial and startup ecosystem. There have been numerous stories of successful startups in nepal, and the startup energy has never been greater. However, Nepal’s true entrepreneurship potential has not yet been realized as new startups face many problems, and opportunities for growth may go unnoticed. Therefore, there needs to be a platform where all the stakeholders of the entrepreneurial community come together to plot the direction where the ecosystem is heading, and to celebrate entrepreneurship in Nepal.
NEXT Growth Conclave is the platform where we instigate discussions to shape Nepal’s entrepreneurship ecosystem. The conference brings together some of the most influential national and international speakers, investors, and media, to inspire Nepalese entrepreneurs, and share with them the secrets of business growth to take their ventures to the next level.
The conclave also hosts ‘Startup Valley’, Nepal’s largest startup exhibit, which allows startups to showcase their exciting ventures in front of a network of influencers, early adopters, and the media. The participants also have a one-of-a-kind opportunity to launch their products at ‘Kickstart Hill’.
