Announcing FS Talk January 2023

Hello everyone, 

We’re back with 2023’s first FS Talk, a Future Startup’s flagship entrepreneurial lecture series. We’re hosting the virtual Talk on 28 January 2023. The event will feature a talk by Shuttle Co-founder & CEO Reyasat Chowdhury. 

Registration is open now. While FS Talk is a free event, it is invite-only. Please register to get an invitation. You can register here


FS Talk is a small, friendly gathering of entrepreneurs, change-makers, doers, and artists from a wide range of backgrounds, where we get together to talk about all things entrepreneurship, building things, trials and tribulations of entrepreneurial journeys, and meet each other and share ideas and opportunities. 

Creation is a lonely job. It gets easier when you have a community to share and unburden from time to time. 

FS Talk features two segments: a lecture + Q&A, followed by networking opportunities. Towards the end of every month, we invite a fascinating speaker, usually a fellow maker, to share their hard-earned wisdom on a timely topic with us. 

January Speaker: Reyasat Chowdhury, CEO, Shuttle
