OneSeed Expeditions was founded in 2010 by Chris Baker, Bishnu Thapa, and Tek Bahadur Dong. Conceived as a social enterprise with a sustainable revenue stream, OneSeed Expeditions grew directly out of the research and work experience of its founders. OneSeed’s founders bring a unique mix of mountain guiding, ethnographic fieldwork, and non-profit skills to the start-up team.
We try to keep it pretty simple: you take an amazing trip; a local entrepreneur launches or expands their small business.
We aim to change the way that travel impacts local communities. We’ve all seen the negative side of tourism, but what happens when you take the power of travel and harness it to fund creative entrepreneurs? Answering that question is what OneSeed is all about.
