Nepal entered a phase of high economic growth of 7.5% in 2016-17, recovering from low economic growth post-earthquake and trade disruption. Nepal is undergoing significant economic transformation, uncovering investment opportunities across a wide array of sectors. The country seeks to sustain the impressive growth rate through increased momentum in post-earthquake reconstruction and significant spending on large infrastructure projects. Infrastructure investment will be a lucrative ground for private sector investment given the government focus on adopting Public Private Partnership (PPP) model for large infrastructure projects including hydropower, smart cities, new towns, railways and roadways. With Internet penetration reaching 63% in January 2018 as stated by a Nepal Telecom (NTC) report, Internet connectivity is available to a larger mass, which makes it feasible for online services to gain momentum. In fact, by 2025, compared to its neighboring countries – India and China, the penetration of Internet and mobile connections is predicted to be much higher as shown below. According to the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Nepal is expected to be a forerunner in Internet penetration at 79% with China, following at a 75% penetration rate. Similarly, Nepal is projected to lead with 124% mobile connection penetration, while India’s mobile connected penetration is predicted at a mere 98% in 2025, thus making Nepal a ‘Mobile-first’ Country by 2025. Every 1 in 2 Nepalese have access to internet today against every 1 in 3 Indians and every 1 in 3 mobile phone users in Nepal uses smartphone now. As the global trend toward smart cities gains rampant pace, Nepal, also follows suit. With the intention of addressing the acute necessity for adequate urban infrastructure and attaining sustainable development, smart city initiatives are being put in motion. There has been a steady rise in the number of entrepreneurial ventures or startups in Nepal, thanks to increasing Internet penetration.
