Kathmandu, February 1, 2018: Nepal Entrepreneurs Hub is organizing ‘Global Startup Weekend Kathmandu: Women, Girls and SDGs’ from 14 to 16 February, 2018 at Nepal Innovation Lab (NLAB), Lagankhel.

According to the organizer, the event will be a platform for the female innovators to share and build their ideas and meet with the mentors to polish their business ideas. The participants will be working in the team throughout the event. Similarly, anyone having ideas specifically targeted to foster and support the implementation, monitoring/evaluation, and achievement of any of the 17 SDGs will be benefited from the forum.

In just 54 hours, the participants will experience the highs, lows, fun, and pressure that makeup life at a startup. The ideas are polished, pivoted, during the three days with coaches and team members. At the end of the three days, there will be a final pitching session where top teams are selected.
