Katha Ra Byatha: Innopreneur Ko in Nepali translates to the Tales and Pains of an Innovation Entrepreneur. This is a FREE monthly series of discussion forum on subjects focused on innovative entrepreneurs and their development in Nepal’s perspective where each discussion will showcase a successful entrepreneur in Nepal.
We bring present the journey of entrepreneurs of different background. The audience can hear the stories of struggles, hardships, successes and failures of entrepreneurs and can learn from it. Nepal is still developing and we need national role models to motivate the youth and to teach them that success does not come in a single day.
All the discussions will be around the areas of entrepreneurship in Nepal’s perspective.
This time we are having Shashwat Dhakal who is the MD/CEO at Mega Mart Pvt Ltd (operator of the Big Mart chain of supermarkets). He has an MBA from the Apex College and a second MBA from the National University of Singapore Business School. He’s had brief exposure in the VC industry abroad and has been a lifelong entrepreneur in his home country of Nepal. He’s also an academic at heart and teaches strategy and entrepreneurship occasionally. His biggest passion is that of building companies and having a direct contribution in employment generation in the country. He firmly believes that the only way to contribute to the development of Nepal is to create employment opportunities in the country and the only way to do that is to build sustainable and large companies. His personal mission is to create direct and indirect employment of 10000 in the next 5 years. Currently, he’s achieving a number close to 1000 but he’s positive he can hit the 10000 number sooner than the 5 years he’s set for himself!
