Greetings from Bengaluru 🖐,

We have been thinking for a long time about how we can help professionals transition from one career to the other and have come to believe that at the root of all transitions lies developing an interest in new areas of work 🧘

With this thought in mind, we though of introducing live micro-courses where you can learn the basics of a subject via live classes with a subject matter expert 📚 This will help you explore multiple subjects through guided sessions with subject matter experts !

Our first micro-learning initiative is the LnL Finance Bootcamp 📈

  • The objective is to introduce non-finance professionals to the basic concepts of finance and help you develop business thinking skills which are crucial in case you are planning to join a startup or startup on your own.

  • This will also help you understand companies from a financial perspective and financial motives of founders and investors, which will be useful for day to day interaction with businesses and while undertaking legal work e.g. while conducting diligence’s, making cap tables, drafting contracts, advising clients on risks.

  • Above all, it will give you a new perspective towards commerce and help you explore a new subject. This can be the ramp into your next career option !
