Forbes-listed Nepalese dollar billionaire Binod Chaudhary gave an example by naming a young entrepreneur. Chaudhary spent 2 minutes praising the young entrepreneur and his business.
Rohit was praised by 27-year-old Rohit Tiwari. And, the new company he started, Food Mario.
Praising the new start-up business Food Mario launched by Tiwari in 2017 and the style of business it has adopted, Chaudhary added, “This is the best exemplary business to bridge the gap between demand and supply in the market.”
We reached his office last Tuesday to meet Tiwari. When he reached the third floor of the M&S Tower in Pulchowk, Rohit was busy with work. Putting aside the busyness for a while, he put his hand forward with a soft smile on his face. They shook hands and welcomed us and set aside half an hour for conversation.
In 2017, during a discussion with Tiwari’s mentor Ananta Saurabh, Tiwari came up with the idea of doing something in the food industry. He refined that thought for a while. To make the plan a reality, they planted seeds, fertilized it, and one day it sprouted and died.
How much did Tiwari invest when he started the company? After hearing Klikmandu’s question, he paused. He spread a soft smile on his face and said, ‘That’s about 20,000.’
“Initially, I started by creating a group on Facebook. At first, I didn’t even have the money to register the company. Later, when the company was registered, some money was raised from the market,” he added.
