After speaking to more than 100 Social Entrepreneurs in Nepal and understanding their requirements, we are happy to announce the launch of the first edition of BLINCUBATOR.
A unique need based, evidence driven learning program for emerging entrepreneurs working in the space of environment, climate change, waste management, urban infrastructure and/or technology driven green initiatives. The goal of the program is to support social entrepreneurs who are committed to solving the pressing challenges that we as a society all face today. Climate change is a given, resources are being depleted and we are still struggling to come to terms with how to manage the change that we as humans have initiated. And this program is for those warriors who believe they can make a difference.
Blincventures.com has partnered with various organizations as subject matter experts to help understand the challenges and barriers for start-ups in this space. These organzistions have been successfully created and implemented solutions for various challenges in the Kathmandu Valley for the last few years.
