This is the first time that a Bangladeshi ride-sharing platform has launched operations beyond its borders

Pathao, one of the fastest growing tech startups in Asia, has announced the launch of its services in Nepal.

This is the first time that a Bangladeshi ride-sharing platform has launched operations beyond its borders.

Founded in 2015, Pathao has become a popular e-commerce delivery and ride-hailing service—later expanding into the food delivery industry.

"Pathao has built a platform that enables employment for thousands of drivers and a product that millions of customers use in Bangladesh. We are excited to take our Pathao platform internationally - starting with Nepal. We have already started to get riders on board in Nepal, and plan to launch in the next few weeks. The Pathao team is inspired to be #MovingNepal and working closely with the local ecosystem," said Patho CEO Hussain M Elius.

Pathao’s Marketing Lead Sayeda Nabila Mahabub said: “We are excited to announce that Pathao is officially launching in Nepal in a few weeks. The operations have already been set up. Pathao is first launching its bike-hailing service, in Kathmandu. This is a historic event for Bangladesh.”
