Education + Design + Entrepreneurship

DoLAB was established in 2018 at King’s College, Nepal as a part of the college’s incubation and entrepreneurship education efforts. At DoLAB we continually learn, experiment with and create programs that catalyze and manifest innovation. This includes taking experiences of working with the industry into the classroom and bringing innovation and design practices from the classroom to the industry. We base our activities in the principles of human centered design and merge Education, Design and Entrepreneurship. Our method is based on the Lab Studio Model, designed in Oulu University of Applied Sciences, Finland.
