Call for Applications: Global Entrepreneurship Bootcamp 2018


Kathmandu, November 23, 2017: OYA Opportunities has called for applications for the second edition of Global Entrepreneurship Bootcamp (GEB) that is going to be organized in Bangkok, Thailand from January 15-18, 2018.

Global Entrepreneurship Bootcamp is a global platform for connecting active and ambitious youths of today. The organizer OYA Opportunities believes that it could be one of such forums that develop youth entrepreneurship by connecting Nepali youth to global entrepreneurs.

According to Bijay Rimal, OYA’s planning and communication officer, GEB is inspired from the concept of global entrepreneurship that commenced from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs are the participants of GEB. This is an intensive educational and leadership session that brings together many young entrepreneurs from around the world and places them on a common platform to innovate and create new businesses by collaboration.

Talking about GEB 2018, Rimal added,

About one hundred participants are to take part in the session. Teams are prepared according to the intersection of business ideas and 10 best business ideas are chosen via voting at the beginning. Then the teams are given three nights and four days to work on those ideas and the final result is presented among the participants. The winning business idea is decided via votes as well.

The first session of GEB was organized at Kakani, Kathmandu in September, 2017. The participants pitched some great ideas, all of which could have turned into real businesses. The session came up with some good business models: Chyine – a traditionally made alcohol remade and sold commercially with much better quality, Let’s Connect – an online platform to connect investors with startups, Traveler’s Euphoria – a travel company that aims to connect people to the local culture of where they go, and IDEBUS – an organization that works for self-development skills in youths among others.
