Nepal – Samriddhi, the Prosperity Foundation, organized several events to mark Global Entrepreneurship Week, in partnership with a wide range of other local organizations. These included an event on November 21 to highlight the achievements of five prominent Nepali entrepreneurs, which was covered in the country’s main national daily newspapers, including the Kathmandu Post, Republica, the Himalayan Times, and others. Attendees also included the head of the Federation of Nepali Chambers of Commerce and Industry and the Chief Executive of the Nepal Investment Board. The next episode of Samriddhi's radio program on entrepreneurship is planned for December 2, and will address how financial institutions can better serve small-scale entrepreneurs.
