Announcing FS Talk On Building Things From Scratch: December 10, 2016
Registration for FS Talk December, 2016 -a signature event of Future Startup- is open now. We invite our readers, makers, entrepreneurs of all kinds to join us in a 3.00 hours long in-depth and intimate composition of participatory discussion, conversation and social mixing to dig deep the very idea of building a business in Bangladesh.
Story of December Talk
In December we will be listening to Muhammad Shahin and pbazaar, his story of building an ecommerce company from scratch without any funding in Bangladesh, and take part in his journey. We aim to make the event as intimate and participatory as possible unlike many big events where audience seldom get the chance to interact and get their answers.
The purpose is to understand trials, and triumphs of building a company in Bangladesh and understand the process. Unlike many events, we are looking to find people who are into building business, particularly internet companies, and people who take interest in the burgeoning tech space in the country.
Here is a rough run down of topics we aim to cover:
- What does it take to start a company
- How to validate your idea
- What are the key challenges you face during early days
- How to build a solid business without raising money
- What does it mean by starting small in reality and how can you do it
- Growth strategies for an early stage company
- Building a great team
- Developing process and systems as you go
The event will be highly participatory. Speakers will discuss their journey and perspectives and you will get to share yours and also ask questions.
Muhammad Shahin, founder and CEO of pbazaar.com, is a successful entrepreneur. He has started a company from scratch, literally out of a garage, gone through the trials and struggles of building an internet business from nowhere in Bangladesh. He knows the bits and pieces of struggles and challenges a founder goes through and also how to survive those challenges. He will be sharing his story, answering questions from audience and discuss his perspective on building an internet business.
