One to Watch Nepal is a fund management company based in Nepal since the last five years, with operations in Myanmar for the last one year. We work with small and medium sized companies focusing on basic needs – food, infrastructure and healthcare, companies that create impact and profits. Our operations have three phases. Firstly, we source companies through our accelerator programs including our signature impact accelerator Rockstart Impact, where we accelerate ten companies yearly in Nepal and Myanmar each. We make them investment ready with the objective of bringing FDIs. We provide mentorship from international and local mentors who support in validating their innovative business models and setting up basic governance. Secondly, we invest in high potential high impact companies. Our highly qualified on ground investment management team in Nepal supports our investee companies to grow, by providing guidance, performing and reporting periodic asset performance measurements. And thirdly, we provide post-investment support. One of our key support initiatives is Financial Control services. Our highly experienced financial officers help develop financial targets of the investee companies and track their achievements. Our team works with dedicated and innovative entrepreneurs and we highly emphasize innovation and development of our technologies and methods.
