What is the Nutritionist Entrepreneurship Program (NEP)?
NEP is a 6-week experiential learning program designed exclusively for Nutritionists and Dieticians to empower them with the skills, tools and resources to establish, sustain and grow their practice. The objective of this program is to acquaint nutritionists with the practical skills they haven’t learnt in college but are essential to flourish as a successful professional. Nutritionists and Dietitians from all countries of the world are eligible to apply to the program.
NEP was born because the creators (Dr. Vishal Marwah and Dt. Tehzeeb Lalani) saw a dire need to empower brilliantly educated Nutritionists and Dietitians with the confidence, skills and resources to establish their own practice.
Nutrition colleges train nutritionists primarily in the science of nutrition, but not in the art and business. It is painful to see highly educated nutritionists being rewarded with gruesome work hours and only meagre salaries. Career options are limited. NEP is addressing this challenge by training nutritionists to be successful entrepreneurs.

The basic eligibility criteria for NEP are:
● BS or MS in Nutrition/Dietetics/Food science from an accredited University
