KATHMANDU: Ace Institute of Management, one of the leading management colleges in Nepal, concluded Ace Ignite — a 48-hour hackathon with a rationale to unleash the potential of aspiring innovators in Nepal.

Prajwal Shrestha, the event lead, said, “Seeing the young minds from the diverse fields working together to create innovative solutions that actually solved the problem led the team to a conclusion that “Yes, we Did” “Yes, we Will” and “Yes, we Can” can change the world for the better. Further, the enthusiasm of the participants did ignite the flame at the end”.

Benzin Dahal, one of the mentors, said, “It was an amazing experience seeing youths collaborating in a single platform to create such an amazing innovation that addresses a real-world problem. The best thing about the hackathon was that they were not just limiting them to their innovations but working hard to get their innovations into the hands of people who are in need.”
