The Story behind The Doers Nepal
We so often hear that there are no opportunities here in Nepal and therefore many people want to go take the easy way out and go abroad. However, this same thing was what inspired TheDoersNepal. As per them, “ It is an amazing opportunity that there is nothing in Nepal”. It allows aspiring entrepreneurs to come up with ideas to create opportunities and fill various market gaps.
The main purpose of the Doers Nepal began was to bring together people who are working to fill those gaps and are examples that there are opportunities for things to be done in Nepal itself. They themselves sought the Opportunity to build a platform to bring forward such stories and experiences from the people who were on the mix of it.
As they say, there are lots of thinkers who never get things done so the major step is putting ideas into action. Hence, they came up with the name for their show as “The Doers Nepal”.
Early Challenges and Putting Ideas into Action
After analyzing the market they figured that there were quite a number of podcast fans and that there was a gap of such content in Nepal. So, seeing that there was a gap where they could fill in and also a good audience base they decided to go through with the idea.
Also, another driving force for the idea was they themselves loved listening to podcasts and it helped them to learn a lot. While putting the idea into action, there were some hurdles they had to overcome. Well, as per them conversation was the only thing they knew about the podcast and the whole technical knowledge and other aspects of it were something they were unfamiliar with at the beginning. Some of their friends helped to figure out the ambience of the show. After consistent work and pursue of their idea they now have team members for every department of the show which itself shows how far they have come.
As far as the response from the market goes, it was pretty mixed as some found it boring while others found it quite intriguing. It was something that was really new to the market in Nepal.

The Covid-19 Impact
As we know the impact Covid has had in businesses and life in general in one way or the other. In the context of The Doers Nepal, they were shooting for a new season of the doers just before the covid outbreak brought it to halt. They had also been backed by two amazing sponsors who were helping them to produce better content. So, when the outbreak happened and people were forced into lockdown all of it came to a pause.
In spite of all that, they did online recordings and had sessions online and also managed to publish them. On the bright side for them, as everyone was in lockdown people were starting to consume more content online and an upsurge was seen. Taking advantage of that they started promoting their platform online as well.

They want to be able to mobilize their network of the show and consult businesses to do better. The Doers Nepal team is in the process of introducing more related shows. With the impact the show has been making to inspire people, they have felt the need to reach to masses. Therefore, they plan to debut on television as well in the near future.
Experiences from The Doers Nepal
