A Need to Adapt and to Anticipate Change

Q. When did you first start to show an entrepreneurial streak?

A. I was maybe 14 years old and I was attending a vocational school in Nepal where we were being taught secretarial skills. I was a good student and one of my teachers encouraged me to set up a snack shop inside the school. I borrowed a few rupees and with some of my classmates we would go shopping, buy a few items and then set up a table and resell the items inside the school. Looking back, it was actually a great way of learning the dynamics of business — it really taught me the ABCs of buying, selling, stocking.
