Sometimes, solving an issue leads to a breakthrough. Just by providing the right help at the right time can create success stories. That was exactly the case for 31-year-old entrepreneur Anil Thapa when he launched his app Invaito.
With the Internet being the “hot cake” in recent years, Anil knew it was the right time to make his mark in the Nepali market. And what better platform than the internet.
So, what exactly is Invaito? And how Anil is changing the game?
About Anil Thapa and his journey
Passionate about starting his own business, Anil tried multiple ventures during his early start as an entrepreneur. At just 17 years of age, Anil stepped into the world of business. He started very small and gained as much knowledge and experience as possible. From running restaurants to hair salons, he tried all sorts of ventures.
Both his educational credentials and passion for business led him into Nepal’s competitive market as a young and emerging entrepreneur. Yet, as we all know, not everything ends up as planned.
Some of his businesses worked, some didn’t. But he never left hope.
All his entrepreneurial ventures helped him learn a lot about the Nepali market. He learnt everything; from market trends to changing policies and even the impacts of the government on local businesses.
Out of all these things, he was fascinated by the growing popularity of the internet. After seeing the prospects of the internet, Anil stepped into the digital world through Kwaanti group. This helped him understand the structure of the internet, how it works and using it to the fullest. Having studied the market scenario of his country for a couple of years, Anil knew it was the right time to act. With his team’s support and the internet as his platform, he then launched Invaito.
Finding reliable service providers was still a major issue in Nepal. Whether you plan on hiring a photographer or simply want a haircut, finding a professional was always a hassle.
