About this Event

Building a startup is hard. The transition to first-time founders needs both insights and inspiration, and we believe the best way to get both is through real stories of people who have done that.

Welcome to the first event of our "Founder's Journey" series. During this event, we will have a conversation Vinay Hiremath @ Loom to dive into his journey.

Some of the topics we will cover:

  • finding the right idea and validating it
  • getting product-market fit
  • importance & challenges in execution
  • decision making - process and framework
  • daily habits and beliefs

We will also cover some side topics such as "async vs sync" and being remote.

This event is in partnership with South Park Commons (SPC)! Vishal Kapur from SPC will be moderating the fireside chat with Vinay.

About SPC:

SPC is a collective of technologists, tinkerers, and entrepreneurs who have come together to freely learn and explore new ideas. SPC brings together explorers who are looking for their next venture and passionate about making a positive impact. They've had over 200 members thus far who have either started their own companies funded by Greylock, Sequoia, Accel, etc. or gone on to join organizations like Google Brain, Open AI, CZI.
