Announcing FS TALK February, 2015

Registration for FS Talk February, 2015 -a signature event of Future Startup- is open now. After almost 12 months we are again inviting a small group of makers, aspiring entrepreneurs, and dreamers, artists of all kinds and misfits to join us in a 4.00 hours long in-depth composition of monologue and conversation and social mixing to dig deep the very idea of making.

FS Talk

'FS Talk’ is a small, friendly gathering of entrepreneurs, makers, doers and artists of any kind. Once in every two months, we welcome some of the people who have experiences of starting-up following their ideas, have suffered and enjoyed their journey to make changes, have a pain in heart to start and have a desire to strive for good.

We invite great entrepreneurial minds, thinkers and makers of our time as speakers to share their inspiring and insightful stories that inspire the idea of starting up and making things happen for good.

FS Talk is a free event but it requires online registration to get an invitation. Apply now.

Theme for February: Make

You can talk whole day, week, month and year and years to come. But if you do so, it will make no difference. On the other hand, making a difference is simple: Make something, anything.

Our theme for February is ‘Make’. On February 28, 2015 will be exploring the idea of starting, making anything, asking poignant questions about what it takes to start, and trying to find a navigator to travel the path of making as well.
