Nepalese Entrepreneur, Young ICT Entrepreneur, young Entrepreneur in Nepal, Exploring the link between technology and entrepreneurship in Nepal, Shaping the future with the Slashplus. We asked some questions to Kshitiz Karkee, CEO of Slashplus Pvt. Ltd.
What’s your background, and how did you come into your role as a CEO of SLashplus IT company?
I completed my graduation in business studies four years ago and my background heavily relied on management side. However, I’ve have always had a fascination with technology and computers. While studying bachelor I used to take computer classes and thus decided to pursue my careers in IT field. Before establishing my own company I had worked under an IT company for two years and dreamed the CEO position at the age of 23 which helped me to develop a mindset. All I ever wanted to do was worker under an IT company and to serve the nation and that determination made me an entrepreneur.
Why Slashplus? How did Slashpus get started?
Slashplus is more than just an institute, or consultants that comprises of dedicated professionals as passionate about technology and business. One mind is powerful and a team of minds is limitless.

I made my decision of starting a business when I was working under a company but starting a business was a mysterious process. However, I had figured out what exactly I wanted to do and took the action accordingly. And that’s how Slashplus got started.
Are you a team player? How do you handle the critical situations as a CEO?
I’ve worked in teams and individually as well. I find that working in a team strengthens the work performance as well as creates a proper workflow and information distribution between the team members. On the other hand, working individually as the owner is challenging.
But I have always considered responsibility as a motivation and the manner I worked helped to safeguard quick execution of the work.
The major struggle faced by any CEO’s is to meet professional obligations while trying to live a balanced life. The CEO is so tied to the business that there are no resources for the CEO to share management responsibilities. Thus decision-making, sales, marketing, operations and growth are restricted to the CEO’s abilities and available time. Starting your own business is terrifying, exhilarating, energizing, draining, and about a dozen other emotions at the very same time.
Being a CEO of Slashplus are you able to implement your vision into reality.
The major challenge faced by any CEO is transforming vision into reality.The journey begins with the vision, which is inevitable and helps to meet the organization objectives which is based on actions and decision.Though the path to achieving the vision is usually not obvious but I have been able to implement my vision into reality. I have always believe that almost anything is possible with the right strategy and action to gain success or objectives.
