    The Team

    Outside’s team finds creative ways to collaborate across four time zones. In Nepal, we play futsal & table tennis; make chatpate, pani puri, and milk tea; and participate in weekly Knowledge-Sharing Sessions. Internationally, we celebrate a mix of holidays and visit each other in new or shared cities. A diversity of backgrounds, interests, and worldviews enriches our work & play.

    Why Nepal?

    Two of Outside’s three founders are from Kathmandu, Nepal. We’re excited to be creating from this part of the world, which is experiencing a surge in entrepreneurial activity, especially in tech & design.

    It’s clear that now is the time to make a positive impact by investing head-first in the city’s potential, contributing a portion of our profits to local initiatives, supporting local talent in the tech industry, challenging stigmas about outsourcing, and offering an alternative template for success—one that prioritizes people over profit.

    Sarthak Karki & Smriti Subedi | Founders Traverart

    Outside 3.0

    Shiva Dhakal | Founder Royal Mountain

    “Nepal is emerging to become a destination for sustainable & community tourism, creating avenues to use tourism as a global force for good. We are proud to be associated with this movement.”

    Outside 3.0

    Sachin Shrestha | Founder The Local Project

    “Nepal is what we know, where we’re from, and what we love. We noticed that the market for Nepalese products seemed to be dragging along in the same traditional manner. There was plenty of room for innovation & an opportunity to provide a strong platform for some amazing Nepal-made products.”

    Outside 3.0

    "Nepal faces significant gender disparities, and we believe using sports as a tool for empowerment can help break down societal barriers, boost self-confidence, and provide opportunities for leadership & skill development for women.”
