Bunch of Nepali Sahu Jees got together and established a company called “Fortune Cookie Pvt. Ltd” about a year and so before (http://www.fortunecookieventures.com/index.php) . They thought that they would change the dynamics of Nepali IT sector with mere fund size of about $1 million (as promised – this may just be media campaign). A year or so has passed and nothing noticeable has happened. Bunch of guys who groomed up from traditional Sahu Jee model had no clue of what it takes of growing business from zero. All of them had exposure to their family sources and none of them have established something revolutionary. These Sahu Jees are now pondering “what is not working?” Chanakya had told his friends that the so called “cookie” was a joke. Chanakya was right. Nothing has yet happened as Sahu Jees started something merely to attract smart Nepali engineers who are flocking to American Software company called “D2″ right after the graduation. It is heard on the street D2 is still the first choice for fresh engineers from top engineering school in Nepal. Chanakya love to give a business 101 lesson to these Sahu Jees who treat their employees like “hired workers.” Employees should be treated as partners and in modern capitalism, every employee gradually becomes owner of the company. Sahu Jee Sanjib Raj Bhandari has not even given minute piece of his company to his star employees. How could Chanakya expect that they would invest $100K in a project where they have very little control?
