One to Watch (OTW) announced the launch of its new accelerator program – Enterprise at an event held in Kathmandu on June 22. For the past four years, One to Watch has been successfully running Rockstart Impact, an accelerator program focused on bridging the gap between entrepreneurs and impact investors. With the recent partnership between One to Watch and True North Associates (TNA), their two successful acceleration programs – Rockstart Impact and Enterprise: Nepal Business Accelerator Program, are coming under one roof. Both the programs are aimed to help and support growth stage Nepali companies to become investment ready and move to the next level of growth. Hence, these two programs have been combined under one flagship program now called Enterprise. Amod Rajbhandari, Director for Accelerator and Entrepreneurship Development, heads the Enterprise program.
“This new combined program will be the leading accelerator program in Nepal. The program brings together two sets of strong national and international networks of investors, experts, mentors and ecosystem partners,” shared Amod Rajbhandari, Director, Accelerator and Entrepreneurship Development, One to Watch.
Applications for Enterprise have started from June 22 till August 31 and can be accessed online via www.enterprise.com.np. Ten companies will be selected for this 12-week accelerator program. Although the application deadline for the next batch is 31 August, Enterprise will continue to accept applications on a rolling basis for future batches.
