Sharad Chandra Rai

CEO of asha&company, Inc.

He holds a Masters’ degree in international development from the University of Tokyo. Currently, he is  pursuing PhD in Sustainability Science at the University of Tokyo. 

He started his career at SoftBank Corporation where he was involved in the new business development department working with Japanese and global startups. 

Born in a remote village near Mt. Everest in Nepal, he received government scholarship to study in one of the finest schools in the country when he was 10 years old. This changed his life. Therefore, in order to give back to his beloved country, he established two schools in his community where the future of more than 500 kids is being shaped today. He has also successfully established non-profit organizations in Nepal and Japan that have touched the lives of more than 20,000 students across Nepal. 

With a vision to contribute to Nepal’s economic growth by 1% in the future, he has built asha & company. Nepal being a landlocked country, traditional fields of industrialization such as manufacturing are not feasible. Thus, the country’s biggest strength is its people and their intelligence. By nurturing some of the top notch talents in Nepal, he aims to create a whole new research and consulting industry in the country. 

He currently divides his time between Tokyo and Nepal.
