A team of experts in digital marketing, brand building, and business consultation. Gurkha Technology strives to create a tech-literate society that solves problems smartly.
How it all began?
Gurkha Technology was co-founded by the core 5 members: Diwas Pandey, Kapil Amagain, Sudip Dhungel, Bibek Neupane and Sucil Ghale.
In 2013, as a part of our Final Year Project for our Computer Engineering Degree, we developed a mobile app. Basically, it was a movie streaming app which we uploaded on the playstore. To our surprise, people actually started downloading the app and after a week, the app generated 40 cents. Our app had actually started to generate minor revenue! No sooner, we were spinning off apps and churning in money home. It was then that we realized that there is a huge potential for mobile applications in Nepal.
It’s safe to say, those 40 cents completely changed our lives.
The success of our application venture inspired us to register and formally run an organization, Gurkha Technology. This is how we started.
We came up with Kinmel, a free ad space and classified ads platform. We teamed up with Nepal’s first calendar and came up with digital version of the 126 years old legacy. We also partnered with Nepal’s most trusted and reputed Chartered Accountants and began a tax forum and a tax query platform.
Now we are 20 people, each one amazing at what they do and getting better at it everyday. We take pride in our team, and have strong belief in our abilities. After all, we are team Gurkha, all ideas are conquerable to us, and all feats possible.
What we like doing?
At Gurkhatech, we are fond of having fun. Our idea of fun is helping people, visiting new places, playing futsal and eating. We have futsal matches every week where most of the team members eagerly participate. We organize outings once in a while to take a break from the city life and also try to incorporate public service in our outings. However, the thing that we like doing the most is to come to work, get to meet our colleagues and in every instance, try to make the world a better place.
What drives us?
We are passionate, hardworking and filled with zeal. Our love towards technology and even more towards humanity is what helps us to wake up every morning and drive to work. We are like a family and that’s what keeps the ball rolling.
Our love for the nation and its people has always been the driving factor behind our efforts. These are the factors which push us forward, from the core, and on top of it, it’s all coffee, cake and ice creams.
