In the year 2018, MIT Global Startup Labs (GSL) in collaboration with Kathmandu University powered by Ncell, for the first time in Nepal, was successfully able to generate the best entrepreneurship ideas through Nepalese students from Kathmandu University. The top nine ideas pitched were introduced to an intense seven weeks of boot camp focusing on web and mobile application technologies for entrepreneurship opportunities where various courses were taught by MIT students and four mentors from MIT itself.
Sajilo Marmat Sewa (SMS), along with other eight ideas, was provided with an opportunity to present the ideas, vision, and mission on the Demo Day organized after the completion of the seven weeks long program, which was attended by a number of top business leaders, entrepreneurs and potential investors.
The idea of SMS focused on providing handymen services to put Nepalese households and corporate houses at an ease by providing one stop solution for maintenance; delivering qualitative and responsible services. The ultimate mission of SMS delivering its main focus on providing hassle free high quality services to the customers, in the most competitive price, with a sense of warmth, friendliness and company spirit all over the country was been able to grab the most attention from the panel of judges and the audiences.
Sajilo Marmat Sewa was thus chosen as the best start-up idea by the panel of judges and was declared the winner of MIT GSL Nepal 2018. SMS has been awarded with an opportunity to participate in the Micro Master Course, an online course, of MIT and also received a seed fund of Rs.500000 from Ncell to support their startup business. In addition to that, SMS has been rewarded with space and mentorship facility at Kathmandu University School of Management (KUSOM) Incubation Center; along with the runner ups, Kinder and Opus.
Today, Sajilo Marmat Sewa is successfully running its business with 65+ technicians, serving 3500+ households, and 90 corporate houses; providing services such as plumbing, carpentry, electrical, interior solutions, and so on.
