Entrepreneurship 101 session with Idris & Saeed

August 16, 2009 at 8:33 pm 7 comments

When we heard that Saeed Kazmi and Idris Kothari, seasoned Silicon Valley entrepreneurs who started their lives at NED University Karachi, were going to be in town, we quickly organized a get-together so that they could conduct a brief session with a bunch of young entrepreneurs and wanna-be entrepreneurs on the challenges that newbies face.

This is a basic overview of Entrepreneurship 101:

The initial presentation was followed by a very interactive session which included questions, comments, anecdotes from Idris and Saeed as well as some of the others who were present. I have broken it up into 3 different videos because it seemed sensible to do so.

Parts of the session were very basic – and something many of us already know – but the interactive session brought out some of the issues that are being faced by entrepreneurs, and possible ways to handle them. If you have ideas you want to share, or suggestions that you think will help others, do add them within the comments section so that we can all learn a thing or two.

    Awesome! I always look for such events but unfortunately they are mostly held in Khi.

    But thanks to you and Fariha for keeping us with you through the live-blog and these videos!

    @Awais actually Saeed Kazmi actually conducted a session at NUST in Islamabad before he came to Karachi. We always miss our friends from Lahore and Islamabad whenever we have sessions like this, and we will try our best to hold them in other cities. The problem always is that these guys are usually here on holiday and they are visiting only one city.

    Anyway, I hope these videos, and Fariha’s live blog, will help you feel you were there with us.

    Thanks for your efforts and I’m looking forward for future SI sessions.
