WWF Nepal with the Nepal Entrepreneurs’ Hub (NEHUB) bring to you the Greenovation Startup Challenge (GSC) 2016 that seeks to nurture entrepreneurship ideas linked to an environmental cause in young and passionate entrepreneurs and startup communities. GSC believes in promoting socially responsible entrepreneurship and welcomes participation from diverse sectors offering you a once-in-a-lifetime experience to turn your green business idea into a reality. It provides you a platform in transforming your innovative ideas, from a concept to a performing enterprise, and assists you in the initial set up of your own business.

GSC will conduct preliminary sessions to build a common understanding of key entrepreneurship and green enterprise principles. This will be conducted through 3 Spark Talks and 2 Meet Ups  over a one-month period, and include topics like Green Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship, Pitching, Customer Development and Lean Design, Business Model Canvas and ThinkDesign. This will lead to a 54-hour Startup Weekend full of energy, hard work, inspiration, mentoring and motivation for selected candidates on 18-20 November 2016.

The top three ideas from the Startup Weekend will receive a seed money of Rs. 150,000* each for the respective enterprise. The winning candidates will receive two mentoring and guiding sessions* from NEHUB for setting up the business after the event.
