How often have you learned something and realized that it would have helped you in a lot of situations? How often have you wished you had known something earlier? How often have you realized that you learnt something a little too late?
Now what if I told you that I had something that can help you learn a lot of the things that the future you would otherwise have wished you knew? A way to get to learn from the journey without going through the journey?
Presenting “I Wish I Knew This” - A Series of Fireside Chats.
In the past 3 years, I've graduated from Law School, founded a creative agency, got into Havard Business School, worked in the CEO's Office at a fast growing e-commerce startup, launched a newsletter, and now I'm working in venture capital. None of this would have been possible without the support and guidance of my mentors and friends around me.
Having said that, there's a lot I know today that I wish I knew while going through the journey. I’m really excited to collaborate with Network Capital and do a series of fireside chats on topics that I wish I had more information about during my journey.
These fireside chats will be had with various experts in their fields. The topics for the series includes applying to business school, building a community, writing a newsletter, building a startup brand, scaling a company, and lots more!
All the sessions will be free to all for the first two weeks, but after that they will go behind a paywall for Network Capital subscribers. However, the aim is to make these sessions accessible to everyone. In line with that goal, we will be setting up an endowment fund that will provide scholarships to all those who would like to access the videos and are unable to afford them. The scholarships will be provided by the Ghida Ibrahim Endowment Fund.
Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you need access to the series.
I can’t wait to bring "Wish I Knew This - A Series of Fireside Chats" to everyone. The first one launches today, i.e. 2nd April and covers the topic of 'Scaling a Startup' with Arjun Vaidya, ex-CEO of Dr. Vaidya's (recently acquired).
