Be there at ICT Meetup 2013 Kathmandu
Prime IT Club (Prime College Venue)

This ICT Meetup is Different!
We have seen many kinds of ICT and IT related events in Kathmandu from CAN Infotech to Locus to even ITU sponsored ICT events. However, this ICT meetup 2013 is different in sense that it is targeted at all students of engineering, technology and enthusiasts irrespective of field of study, and the meet is very specific at its objective (unlike what we find in other similar events). Expect no promotion of products or services (?), specific career oriented discussion and suggestions from the experts, and be ready to target the speakers with your much specific queries – that makes this ICT Meetup even more unique.
Niche Topics for the ICT Meetup
There are more than 15 topic specific event types which on one hand definitely help students learn how to be prepared for the industry, and on the other hand gives industry to familiarize students with current pattern in ICT industry and bring in focus of the future graduates.

ICT Meetup Event Details from the Organizers
Information, Communication, Technology (ICT) Meetup 2013 is the mega event in the Nepalese ICT field. With strong advisory support, our team has come up with an uprising but yet unaddressed phenomenon regarding gap between university graduates and IT industry requirements.
Numerous fresh graduates including university toppers find difficulty to acclimatize in the IT industry. Many innovative ideas of the new generation go unnoticed due to lack of proper platform. At the same time, the industry is facing shortage of capable human resources and creative ideas.
We believe that this event will act as catalyst between deserving ideas of students and Angel’s fund of industry resulting initiation of venture capital concept in our country. With the collaboration of opportunity seeking graduates and potential investors, IT industry can move ahead in faster pace.
ICT Meetup 2013 with the theme “ICT Academia – Industry collaboration” would be the perfect platform for ICT practitioners, developers, IT students, freelancer including different niche IT companies who are deprived from the opportunity to explore themselves, their talents, innovation and projects in the Information technology field. This will not only encourage their potential but also alert them about the prevailing gap between IT industries -academia differences.
This event would also be a common platform for interactions, collaborations and acknowledgement between high level dignitaries, renowned IT professionals, entrepreneurs, business personals, guardians, students and a wide range of visitors. Moreover, this event seeks to create socio-economic awareness among the people about the potential and possibilities of the ICT field in Nepal.
ICT Meetup 2013 will enhance the students and participants to deliver their hidden creativity, skills, knowledge and ability to stand in the technological society. Through the event, we hope to enhance fellowship among youth and speaking of IT, it will surely make huge impact on each and every individual`s knowledge and interest knowingly or unknowingly. So in order to spread knowledge, skills and creativity of youth, we are going to organize second ICT Meetup 2013.
This will surely encourage youth to get involved in extra circular activities, build dynamic personality and broaden their knowledge and develop managerial skills increasing the confidence level. Nevertheless, this event will impose an opportunity of “learning by doing”.
We are very hopeful to our efforts that will help to introduce to this new type of ICT event and platform. We will work hard to elevate this event to make a grand success to its greatest heights. We are planning to organize this event annually as this event is a golden platform to the ICT student, freelancer and IT entrepreneurs.
