Enterprise

nyef Enterprise – Nepal Business Accelerator Program is a business accelerator program, established by the Nepalese Young Entrepreneurs’ Forum (NYEF), in order to help newly set up Nepali companies build better products and move to the next level of business growth. It is the first business accelerator led and operated by the private sector in Nepal.

Enterprise provides 12-week mentorship based programs to a small number of carefully selected companies looking to grow their businesses and attract new investors. The program gives companies an opportunity to work with industry experts to reassess their business models, re-align their vision and objectives, plan their finances, get legal consultation, and ultimately, develop internal resources to target a high level of growth. Companies which are at least two years into operation are eligible to join this program.

For the first eight weeks of the program, companies work extensively with experienced mentors to fine-tune their business models, study relevant market segments, and build strong financial plan. The last four weeks are dedicated to helping companies prepare comprehensive and impressive company presentation suitable for various investor networking sessions. The program culminates with a Demo Day where the companies will present their business plan to a select group of banks, angel investors, venture capital funds, and private equity funds. NYEF has mandated True North Associates, an investment, management, consultancy firm, to manage this program.
