Biswas Dhakal, founder of F1Soft and eSewa said in a recent The Kathmandu Post interview that “everyone sees our success, but they don’t know our failures.”
Behind every success story, there are plenty of stories of “brilliant ideas” that never saw the day of light because of timing, execution, lack of funding, among others. It’s easy to fall in love with the success story and hope that we all have our own version of one hit wonders. But that’s rarely the case. Actually I’ve rarely seen an entrepreneur whose idea just took off in the market. It’s always important to understand the backstage preparation and work that took place before the curtain opened.
