Most members of the society expressed their interest in collaborating directly or indirectly with NIC-Nepal. When asked regarding potential ways that ASNEngr can support NIC-Nepal’s mission, Dr. Pun said, “ASNEngr can support us in five different ways.” His five ways include: 1) giving entrepreneurial ideas to NIC Nepal, 2) providing mentorship to the working entrepreneurs, 3) advertising the ongoing projects, 4) donating money, and 5) investing money in the potential company that NIC Nepal’s entrepreneurs will start shortly. In response, ASNEngr’s vice president Mangal Maharjan reiterated ASNEngr’s interest in working closely with NIC Nepal and pledged support, including providing funds to execute the NIC Nepal’s projects that align with the mission of ASNEngr.
