Google Business Group Kathmandu hosted the “Google Biz Fest and Biz Start 2019” event on 28th December, 2019 at the premises of D.A.V School, Jawalakhel. The event was focused on providing a platform for startups to conduct interactions to give them an exposure and to exhibit their prowess in their respective fields.
CellApp Innovations was one of the many participating entities of the event. As an incubator having created, deployed and exited 7 startups till date, the purpose of CellApp Innovations was a little different from the other participating startups. We were looking to garner ideas and seeking collaborating partnerships in order to facilitate our upcoming startups and projects. CellApp Innovations also conducted an ‘On the Spot’ interview session for people looking for job placements in the field of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.
The involvement and response from the participating crowd and other startups was overwhelming and encouraging as it is helping create a startup ecosystem in Nepal similar to the vision CellApp possesses. The interaction was significant so as to see how startups are going about their business in the context of Nepal. It is evident that a well versed startup atmosphere is slowly beginning to come into existence in our country and here at CellApp we believe we are doing our part in grooming and mentoring startups. The message that CellApp Innovations are always ready to assist and mentor any startup ideas that are worthwhile and innovative was conveyed to all participants with ideas who are looking to build a startup.
SmartPalika, one of the biggest startups by CellApp Innovations was also one of the participating startups in the event and claimed widespread plaudits from people visiting the event. SmartPalika is an integrated digital e-governance framework that has disrupted over 27 local governments till date and counting. The fact that SmartPalika was critically acclaimed and liked by so many people in the event instilled a sense of immense pride and fueled us to do even better in the coming future.
Overall, it was a very productive event where entrepreneurs from varied background and stories were gathered under the same room to share their products and stories alike. CellApp Innovations Team really enjoyed the event and learned about many new things happening around. We look forward to participating other similar events and gaining more knowledge and exposure.
