Friends and business partners Amun Thapa and Suraj Shrestha see a bright future in Nepal and are willing to work hard to realize their dreams. The duo is part of a circle of friends who are successfully doing business together. They are two of the key players in the booming startup culture here in Nepal with Sasto Deal opening business about three years ago. Now they have expanded their business and vision with Sasto Book, Irish Pub, and the recently launched Anthropose.
Making time out of their busy schedules, Amun, Founder/CEO of Sasto Deal, and Suraj, Founder/CEO of Anthropose, sat down with Republica’s Pramila Rai to talk about entrepreneurship, their businesses and what drives them forward.
KATHMANDU, Aug 29: SolBridge International School of Business under Woosong University signed two Memorandum of Understanding (MoUs)—one general and one about student exchange—with Asian Institute of Technology and Management (AITM) in Lalitpur.
The MoUs were signed on August 25 in South Korea by Prof John Endicott, President of Woosong University and Prof Sriram Bhagut Mathe, Chairperson of Nepal Education Foundation-Consortium of Colleges, Nepal (NEF-CCN).
KATHMANDU, Aug 27: The idea of being promoted to a new year/semester usually excites students even though the friends they study with and the college they go to remain the same. After all, it means the beginning of a whole new set of experiences and learning with friends and teachers.
We talked to some college-goers to find out what they look forward to in a new semester/year.
KATHMANDU, Aug 26: Financial independence is one of the prerequisites to a secure life, and as we grow older, we’re encouraged to save as much money as possible. All of us have our own bank accounts where we squirrel away our hard earned money or some pocket money that we may receive from parents and relatives.
But are we making the maximum use of our bank accounts? For most of us, the use of our accounts is restricted to swiping money from ATMs and sometimes, using it for shopping purposes and recharging pre-paid mobile phones.
I was fascinated by a few of my classmates who recently opened an office near our college and started a new company. The energetic youths in their early 20s have been pretty decent at managing their time at college and also at their workplace, establishing themselves as role models for lethargic chaps like us.
In recent years, we’ve seen a rising trend of similar culture in our country. Many engineering and management graduates have invested their knowledge in small projects of their own and there are students who are willing to follow suit. The culture of entrepreneurship is soaring high.
