A startup is a tough nut to crack. Imagine trying to build everything from the ground up, trying to achieve an idea despite everyone telling you otherwise.
If you have been in that situation, don’t you wish for someone to help you? Maybe, inspire you a little… Maybe, change your vision into an absolute reality. Honestly, your startup is a new venture and you do not know where it leads. So having someone on the same path or someone who has already walked that path is always a boon.
Keeping that in mind, NEXT Growth Conclave 2019 is here! Basically, it is a gathering of startups in Nepal where entrepreneurs could meet with other entrepreneurs. As an entrepreneur, listening to someone speak about their journey and their thought process can be a big help! At the same time, an entrepreneur can strengthen their networking and meet up with interested investors!
Moreover, the event is set for Sunday, 15 December 2019, at Soaltee Crowne Plaza, Kathmandu. Furthermore, only limited tickets are available right now!
