Nepal: A serious contender in software development outsourcing

Intrigued by Nepal? This beautiful country, famed for its stunning landscapes, is also quietly emerging as a global IT hub. Let's explore how Nepal can be your ideal outsourcing partner.

Say the words ‘outsourcing destination’ to people in the software industry, and they’ll probably reply with the name of one of the major players – like Bangladesh or India.

Sure, these countries have been dominating the outsourcing market for a while now. But over the last few years, there’s been an increasingly strong contender in software development outsourcing – Nepal. And while we may be biased, Proshore has seen the talent pool grow firsthand – in Kathmandu and beyond.

Nepal: A new South-Asian IT hub

It’s true that many international companies – some big brands – have been outsourcing functionality like software development to Nepal for some time now, it’s just that as an emerging market no-one’s really talking about it in the same way as India or Bangladesh. Yet.

Director of Operations

Nepal boasts of a young, tech-savvy population with a growing talent pool in IT.  The government is actively promoting the sector, with initiatives like the ‘Digital Nepal Framework’ aiming to make Nepal a leading IT destination. This translates to a business environment that supports your outsourcing needs.

Similarly, the talent pool is set to only grow in numbers with the rise of remote working culture, rampant in the tech scene. While most of the youth are drawn to migrating abroad for opportunities, Nepal’s flourishing IT outsourcing industry allows skilled talent to earn international rates right here at home. This social mission has been a core focus for Proshore since 2009.
