Participating in SLUSH GIA

The SLUSH Global Impact Accelerator (GIA) took place on August 17, 2017, at the Kathmandu University School of Management in collaboration with University of Oulu from Finland. SLUSH GIA is a platform that allows startups to showcase their projects to judges from within the valley and Finland. Being a participant in this conference was definitely a highlight in the month and a half Doko has been functioning. Not only were we selected as one of the 15 finalists (http://events.yipl.com.np/slushgia2017/#selection) for the pitching competition, we made it to the next round! Doko Recyclers, along with the two other contestants, have been presented to the Final Selection Committee from Helsinki.

We are waiting for further instructions for the next round of tasks, but we hope to be amongst one of the teams to be part of the GIA in Helsinki, Finland. We would like to thank all family, friends, and clients for the support. Wishing Muskan Bringing Back Smiles and Tootle the best of luck, much hope that three teams make it to Finland!
