How we work

1. Acceptance

At NIC, we expect projects with prospects in either uplifting the economy or having far-reaching social impact, so any projects matching this description will be given higher priority. Proposals are required to be practical, well-researched, creative, inventive and most importantly impactful. They must adhere to the proposal template dictated by our innovation policy. You can submit your proposal by clicking the "Submit Idea" button above or you may also submit your ideas in person, for which please visit our office located near RECAST in Kirtipur, Kathmandu.

2. Assessment

All the proposals sent over will be evaluated by a dedicated team tailored to match the specific field the project falls under. After a comprehensive assessment period where the project will be evaluated based on pre-defined guidelines, a decision will be made on whether to fund the project or not. If the project could be funded after some alterations, our team will guide you through the process given that you are ready to make the suggested changes.

3. Assistance

Proposals that have been selected by the NIC team for funding receive not only financial aid but also mentoring, legal counsel, connections, a workspace and raw materials. Support will continue as long as the project is progressing properly under predetermined deadlines and costs. Our team commits to seeing you through the finish line and into the market and we will be with you every step of the way.
