Impact

We believe that by putting impact as one of the cores of our investment strategy we can bring positive change in Nepal’s economic growth and productivity, thus, we focus on both, financial and impact return of our portfolio companies. We assess the impact of our portfolio companies on a yearly basis. You can download our Impact Booklet 2018 here.

 

In 2018, One to Watch’s 14 portfolio companies employed 415 people, an increase of 26% compared to 2017. Out of the 307 permanent employees, 44% were female. Plus, our portfolio companies trained more than 8,000 individuals in 2018.

Through our activities we are also contributing to the achievement of United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly SDG 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth) and SDG 17 (Partnerships for the Goals); and through our different partnerships and investments, we also support in achieving SDGs 1 to 7. 

One to Watch directly contributes to SDG 8 and 17
