Peter van der Fluit and Robert van Dortmond, The Advisory Committee (AC) members, of Nepal Impact Investment Club (NIIC) recently visited all the NIIC portfolio companies in Nepal from 14th October to 18th October. NIIC, initiated and managed by OTW, is an impact fund that was set up in 2015 and it has invested in six high potential SMEs across various different sectors in Nepal.
The AC members visited all the portfolio companies in Nepal as they reviewed the current status and progress of the businesses, the plans and prospects moving forwards and the difficulties and challenges faced by the businesses. Both Peter and Robert have been valuable mentors and advisors for the One to Watch and have mentored many SMEs in Nepal for multiple accelerators and business development service programs conducted by OTW. During this visit too, they were able to provide insightful suggestion regarding business growth and strategy to the entrepreneurs, and open possibilities of more rigorous and engaging mentorship sessions with them. This visit was also useful for the AC members to provide suggestions for overall fund strategy and management, as NIIC heads towards the harvest stage.
