Spread across 147,181 square kilometers, Nepal has become an emerging startup hub. With fresh ideas, young, innovative brains and huge opportunities, Nepal is in fact the breeding ground for startups.

Top 10 Emerging Startups in Nepal – 2020
Despite being the immediate neighbour to India – a country which in recent times has been home to one of the largest number of startups – Nepal as a breeding ground for startups is still in its nascent stage. Located at foothills of the Himalayas, the country poses a significant geographical hindrance for the development of infrastructure due to unfavourable & unpredictable climatic conditions and the mountainous terrain. Although many entrepreneurs in Nepal are looking at this challenge as a potential opportunity and coming-up with niche and cutting-edge business ideas – both in tech & non-tech verticals – the country still faces a potential deficit of Startup Incubators and VC Firms. According to Nepal’s National Planning Commission, the country needs Rs.20.25 trillion worth of investment to reach the UN Sustainability Development goals in a decade.
However, this scenario is gradually changing. With the advent of startup incubators/accelerators such as Microsoft Innovation Center Nepal, Enterprise Nepal Business Accelerator Program, and Everest School of Startups, and VC firms like Dolma Impact Fund, True North Association, and ACRE, Nepal’s startup ecosystem is slowly moulding itself into one of the most fertile markets to start a business in. Powered by such favourable developments, the amount of influx in Nepal’s startups by VCs is witnessing hockey-stick curve in recent times.
In our current issue of CEO Insights, we bring to you ‘Top 10 Emerging Startups in Nepal - 2020’. The Editorial board of CEO Insights has scrutinized the list via frequent deliberations by a renowned panel of industry’s topmost CEOs, directors, VCs, and industry analysts, throughout the year. Evaluating the scenarios in versatile perceptions has brought CEO Insights to shortlist the startups which are creating a name for themselves through innovative business ideas, cutting-edge offerings, and unconditional customer support. This scrutinized list will not only bring such companies into limelight, but also serve as a guide for individuals & businesses to partner with the finest.
