💼 Do you know that one of the first legal tech companies in India was started not by a lawyer but by IIM A grad Sanjeev Bikhchandani, who would later go on to start Naukri.com. Amit Mehta, Principal at IIFL Ventures speaks to Sanjeev on the 0 to 1 story of building Naukri. Must watch ✅
📚 Must Read:
👩💼 For the Naukri.com story and other the stories of first time entrepreneurs read Rashmi Bansal’s “Stay Hungry Stay Foolish”(P.S. The book seems to be out of print and the only way to read it is to buy the Kindle edition from Amazon !)
💻 Do you have a product idea ? Do you want to build a diligence tracker for lawyers or a time sheet software for firms ? Do you feel the only hindrance is your lack of access to an engineer “who can build my product ?”
🎁 NoCode has come to your rescue ! NoCode tools allow you to build professional quality applications without knowing how to code.
🔧 Check out Bubble and Glide. Also check out the NoCode repository for other cool NoCode tools. NoCode allows you to build an MVP (“Minimum Viable Product”) and test things out with an audience before you build out the full fledged product 😀
⚡ Just to give you an idea of how powerful NoCode is, check out Incomee, a tool for freelancers collect payments and keep track of their income. It is built completely without writing any code 🙌
💭 Have you considered a CFA ? A Chartered Financial Analyst qualification is considered as a gateway qualification for access to jobs in private and public investments (VC & PE funds / Public Market investment firms and more). Deadline for registering for the Level 1 exam being conducted in December, 2020, is on August 19, 2020.
🚀 If you are a lawyer thinking of a career in investing, would be a fantastic course to explore.
🗿 The good folks at Agami are mentoring changemakers who are working on ideas that reinvent law and justice in India; Mentors are Sachin Malhan (Sachin started LST !), Supriya Sankaran and Ritvik Lukose. Further details here.
🤔 Word to the wise: On both the mentorship opportunities above - Both are being offered by senior folks and it will be worth your time to approach them only once you have done lots of research and have concrete thoughts on your idea.
