On a recent issue of VenturePlus, Rudra Pandey shared some insights on what Nepali tech entrepreneurs should focus on. Rudra Pandey is the executive chairman of DeerWalk Inc.
–It’s all about Software
“We don’t have the resources to build computer hardware, so I don’t see the point in trying to build them…..We have to focus on software….So this is the first thing our tech entrepreneurs should realize–our strength is in software.”
“…..However, with consumer applications we don’t have to limit ourselves to Nepal. The users can be from any part of the world. So I believe tech startups should focus on consumer applications. The market is huge.”
“Most of us wait for this big idea that will change everything. We don’t need such big ideas.We can start small and build on that.”
– Collective Bargaining
“One key strength of Nepalis is the culture of community. We are all one big community, and we need to capitalize on our capacity to collectively bargain.”
