A Nepalese brother and sister team is hoping to put the nation’s capital Kathmandu on the map. Literally, and digitally. The aim – in their “GalliGalli” project which is now seeking crowdfunding – is to create a resource for locals and tourists alike that will cover the city’s venues, public transport, and streets and alleyways (called “galli”).
As for financing and monetization going forward, and speaking for GalliGalli, Eileen Guo explains:
"GalliGalli is non-profit and [the two founders] are looking at funding in two primary ways. Once they have their beta version, they’ll be looking for grant money from major foundations, as well as corporate and government partnerships. I believe they may also be looking at the possibility of eventually charging for-profit organizations for some of their data."
