We're back baby!

I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.

This blog post marks our return to a newly re-launched Pasa Trade.

For the newly minted graduate, creating or joining a startup is are often much more appealing than working in a cubicle prison for the rest of their 20's. "Startups are cool, startups are hip, startups are in vogue and so instead of finding a job, many decide to take the plunge and just create their own business.

And so a lifetime, or perhaps in this fail fast culture months of misery awaits, of low lows and high highs. One frantically finds themselves googling business plans that will perfectly suit their new niche idea and market. They fail and fail fast. We’ve failed so many times that we now know exactly what we need to build.

Well, we’ve been through all of that. Eight years ago the very first concept of Pasa Trade was envisioned. We wrote about fairness, fair trade, equality and technology merging together in a startup that would help deserving people in developing countries. We’ve been through a lot since then, Pasa pivoted from idea to idea, through earthquakes, damaged buildings, hurt family members, through to classifieds and now back to our raison d’etre, to help deserving people.

Join us on our journey, help us out by buying some awesome products and spread the word. The pelican is back!

Great start. But advise to have more vendors and partners with bigger product portfolio. Maybe even extend it to all Nepali small scale entrepreneurs who find it tough to access markets for the products, maybe that way you will have wider portfolio and repeat visitors looking for more. All the best on a good start. Lots of success. Harsha
