Five ‘intrepid Nepalese entrepreneurs’ are set to awarded with newly established Surya Nepal Private Limited Asha Social Entrepreneurship Award for their innovative ideas, commitment and their vision for social change.
The award ceremony is scheduled to be held on November 21, 2011 at the Hotel Yak and Yeti in Kathmandu.
Organising a press conference in the capital on Sunday, Change Fusion Nepal informed that this is the first ever award to recognise Nepalese social entrepreneurs who create value for people, planet and profit.
The Award for each individual winner consists of a combination of financial, networking, mentoring and PR support. The jury - a panel of eminent experts with diverse backgrounds will select the winners from among 66 applicants, said the organiser.
There will also be two events which are being organised immediately preceding the Award Ceremony - a Seminar in which experts will interact with the young entrepreneurs and visitors on how to access finance, means to develop business plans and ways to implement them, among others, reads the press statement.
The second event will be a Bazaar in which entrepreneurs can showcase their ventures and simultaneously learn, interact and share ideas with visitors and build networks.
The seminar and the bazaar will be held at Baber Mahal Revisited on November 18 and 19.
The whole event is being supported by Nepal Business Initiative (NBI) and sponsored by Surya Nepal Private Limited. nepalnews.com
