Few weeks ago, my 9 to five job company's CEO was replaced by “Shravan Goli” who hails originally from India. While his professional LinkedIn profile reveals his outstanding skill-set with prior corporal experience in Yahoo and Microsoft, I happen to sought after any Nepali/Nepalese CEO’s working on any fortune 500 companies in U.S.A. Unfortunately, I was not able to find even one.

Normally, We (Nepalese) and Indians/Chinese all come to United States of America for education and eventually to better our future hoping for a better job and successful career. However, when I compare the professional career with Indian/Chinese students, we lag far beyond them. Agreed that, Nepal is dwarfed to the India’s size and therefore India would have more talented individuals but even equating per-census ratio, we lack way beyond Indians in professional career.

Questioning myself over and over again, I delved and researched on our college educational life and beyond along with immigrants from other nations. Unsurprisingly, I  found lot of interesting, true but bitter facts which I will be explaining below.

one reasoning is that nepalese students started coming to US in masses probably only after 2001/2002.
indians started in the 70's.

I wish you had posted all your opinions here if you wanted to discuss the issues here.

I don't think these high profiles became so solely because of 4.0 GPAs or their their years of migration to here. It should be something more than that. One thing I find common about these indians and chinese are they network with each other for the mutual benefits. I have not seen any such things among our communities here.

Not really.

I will tell you I have seen Nepalese founders who have sold their company for >10mil, and still working on startups. You dont have to be here since 1970s to be CEOs/CTOs/CIOs for companies. You have to passionate, be willing to get out, network and explore.

I know there are a lot of people who are in Senior positions in the US, from Nepal.  But it is very difficult for them to get out of the comfort zone and start taking risks and open startups. Success is measured however you define it. Some people are just happy the way they are.

I am more interested in the Young professionals in the US. They can definitely help each other open startups, network, form a community and see <10 years from now, you'll see many succesful executives. That is how I see it.
