Why GBG BizeFest 2019?
The main objective of GBG BizFest 2019 is to bring together entrepreneurs and startup-founders from around the country in a single platform. Developers and representatives from the majority of Nepal’s most popular Android apps are expected to participate in the event.
Speaking about the concept of organizing the event, Amit Agrawal, Manager of GBG Kathmandu says, “GBG BizFest is an annual event happening in different countries throughout the world. We are excited to host this event for the first time in Nepal and bring all the emerging startups under one umbrella.”
There will be more than 100+ startups, app developers and tech communities of Nepal participating in GBG BizFest 2019 promoting their products and services. GBG Kathmandu is expecting to bring more than 3000 people in the event.
The event will feature various workshops delivered by the experts in the tech industry. The workshops will be about various topics, ranging from Google’s suite of tools of online marketing (including Google Analytics and Google Ads) to growth hacking in modern organizations.
The event will have a stall dedicated to Google My Business. Using Google My Business, startups can get themselves enlisted in Google’s business ‘directory’. This will help customers to find the business and its details (such as location, working hours etc.) much more conveniently and the startups’ websites would gain much more chances of appearing on the first page of Google Search Engine Results Page (SERPs), which would effectively mean that their website would get Search Engine Optimized automatically. It’s like a dream come true for anyone with a website.
If you are someone who runs a startup and wants to grow it, you should definitely attend this event. After all, it is free for all to enter.
