World Entrepreneurs’ Day is observed every year on August 21. It’s the ideal day to honour those who go out on their own and establish a company. Its goal is to raise global awareness of entrepreneurship, innovation, and leadership. While the concept of entrepreneurship has remained unchanged throughout the years, the opportunities available to potential entrepreneurs have expanded dramatically. Traditionally, Entrepreneurship was to build a series of enterprises with the goal of making a profit. Modern entrepreneurship includes the goal of changing the world by solving major issues and bringing societal change or developing a new product that changes the way we live our life.
Over the last few years, Nepal’s startup ecosystem has transformed dramatically, with fresh and youthful entrepreneurs coming up with creative concepts every year. Here is the list of some Nepali entrepreneurs you need to know about.
