Startup culture is growing in Nepal and across the globe. Today more and more startups are stepping in the market with solutions to various needs. Younger people, especially, these days are more interested in setting up their own business than getting a job, but the current education system does not provide them with enough skills and knowledge to start their own startup. But now, the young entrepreneurs in the country have an excellent opportunity to get mentoring from experienced coaches in order to get assistance in setting up a startup that will eventually establish them as successful entrepreneurs. And those who have already learned enough from their experience to assist others,they can register as a online mentor.

In May 2012, YEN Marketplace, the Youth Employment Network (YEN) a partnership of the United Nations, the International Labour Organization and the World Bank, set up after the Millennium Summit in 2001 to find new and durable solutions to the youth employment challenge, launched the E-Coaching programme for young entrepreneurs (16-35). The E-Coaching programme matches experienced E-Coaches to young entrepreneurs based on the mentor’s area of expertise, type of industry, location, language and time availability.



The official website of YEN, the YEN Marketplace (yenmarketplace.org), is an online community where youth employment stakeholders can come to find or exchange ideas, resources, and partnership. One of these services is a free E-Coaching programme for young entrepreneurs. The programme aims to:

  • Provide entrepreneurs with direct access to business expertise
  • Facilitate knowledge sharing between entrepreneurs & experts
  • Provide substantial personal support to entrepreneurs to supplement their institutional and financial resources
The YEN Marketplace E-Coaching programme matches experienced E-Coaches to young entrepreneurs based on the mentor’s area of expertise, type of industry, location, language and time availability (e.g. 3 hours per month). E-coaches provide business support and advice to young entrepreneurs and accompany them through the process of setting up their business and finding solutions to specific business challenges. Participating entrepreneurs benefit from the mentor’s advice, knowledge and expertise in a specific industry. E-Coaches receive online mentoring training before they start and the Marketplace provides an online platform for communication and networking.
