Welcome to Industrial Enterprise Development Institute IEDI



The Industrial Enterprise Development Institute (IEDI), a national resource organization committed to entrepreneurship development through training, research, consultancy and enterprise education was established in 1996 as a successor of Industrial Enterprise Development Centre which itself was a successor of former Small Business Promotion Project (SBPP), a joint project of Ministry of Industry and German Technical Cooperation (GTZ) established in 1984. The approach pioneered and developed in Nepal by the project is being implemented in more than 70 countries in Asia, Africa and South America, under the name of CEFE (Creation of Entrepreneurs, Formation of Enterprises).

With a need to provide sustainability and weathering the challenges of entrepreneurship development in Nepal, IEDI’s new focus is to provide services to a maximum number of organizations involved in enterprise development. With this in mind, IEDI’s main thrust has become the capacity development of intermediary organizations. For this, it carries out R&D, testing and dissemination of best practices in business development services, suitable to the different target groups and regions in Nepal.
