We have invited Nepalese and Finnish companies and organizations to get to know each other and develop ideas for starting a business together. At the event, you will learn about Nepal as a business environment and get to know companies and organizations operating in Nepal in person, either on-site or remotely.

Companies and organisations that have been operating in Nepal share their own experiences and what they have learned about Nepal. We also provide information on Nepal’s development challenges and sustainable development goals, as well as how the partnerships between companies and NGOs can contribute to inclusive economic growth, decent work and equal partnership.

When you register for this event, you create a profile for your company that is visible to other attendees. In your profile you can tell what kind of partners you are looking for. This way we can help you find the right partners.
