- Guest post by Conrad Akunga (Roomthinker).
About a month back Iranted
(and by ranting I of course mean lucidly dispensed wisdom) on assorted issues around the non trivial effort of starting and maintaining a business, under the hashtag #biashara
And I use the word business because "startup" has become yet another bullsh-- er -- cliche term shielding the reality on the ground that a startup ultimately is still a business.
The series of tweets, as is wont to happen on twitter, took on a life of its own and created a lot of interest, online and offline.
One of the most common requests was to do a proper talk, as 140 characters can only express so much and context might be lost. (Except for mVitus of course. No context was lost there.
On Wednesday 5th September
from 6-7:30 pm
at the iHub
, yours truly will (attempt) to coherently marshal his thoughts and do a (hopefully) brief talk on #Biashara - Business Lessons From the University Of Hard Knocks.
Bring a sense of humour and a friend. And questions.
