Kochi: Following the footsteps of Silicon Valley founders of sharing knowledge and supporting each other, Profoundis Labs creators
Arjun R Pillai and Jofin Joseph will teach at Startup Village as Visiting Faculty to help budding entrepreneurs set up their early stage enterprises.
The success of Profoundis is a wake-up call to the entire student community in India to leverage the opportunity of a lifetime to build a global business while in college. Young startups need role models to draw inspiration from. "There are very few mentors with product startup experience in our country," said Kris Gopalakrishnan, Chief Mentor, Startup Village.
In the startup world, the community shares its learning with everyone. This helps many other people succeed who then share their new knowledge and experience with young founders in creating a cycle of successful startups. This culture is crucial in the creation of a startup ecosystem.
Pillai, the CEO of Profoundis, will share his global experiences in
fundraising and identifying startup opportunities across the world from
India. Joseph will teach on how to build startup teams and manage
"Sharing our knowledge and experience is the biggest way we can give back to the startup community. We were lucky to have learnt from people like Kris Gopalakrishnan in our early days as entrepreneurs. It is now time for us to repay by teaching everyone with all the knowledge that we have gained," Pillai said.
