Poverty?

Went to another StartUp Weekend yesterday – this time a Designer one.Tweeted a photo of me and my friend Brijendra Joshi who’s is one of the organizers…

To all friends, colleagues, contacts etc who responded to the photo and asked why… etc. here is the answer

“There is an ongoing joke in Nepal, that if we produce a politician, we destroy 100 jobs. But if we create an entrepreneur, we create 100 jobs”

CloudFactory-We-love-Nepal-scaled

I would have loved to be the creator behind that quote.

BUT I”M NOT.

I found it on CloudFactory’s Blog one of the company’s I follow here in Nepal. The reason why I follow them is because I strongly believe that the key to the future of Nepal is ind the hands of these guys and their friends – AND NOT in the hands of Embassies, iNGO’s etc…
