Announcing FS Talk March 2023

“First we shape our social graph; then it shapes us” — Henrik Karlsson

FS Talk, Future Startup’s flagship entrepreneurial lecture series, 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 challenges 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. 

March Speaker: Anowar Hossain, Founder, and MD, DocTime
