We do not usually write takeaways after our Feed events; however, the Trump-Kim Summit panel organised with 1880 was exceptional, with around 250 people attending- a rare opportunity to gather a broad group of experts, several of whom had been long-term observers of Asia and of the Korean Peninsula in particular.
In an era of Twitter trolls and Facebook posts, we are trying to create opportunities for an experience we don’t have enough of: face-to-face conversation.
‘Feed’ is an event format bringing together diverse perspectives in technology, ventures and creativity. We invite a guest for dinner, who has 20 minutes of uninterrupted time to share on a topic he or she is passionate about followed by open conversation.
Through an intimate ‘fireside chat' setting, we hope to foster a quality of candid debate enabled by deeply contextual sharing, to clarify on issues apart from the noise around us.
To date, our speakers have included the founder of a local caregiver marketplace and global VCs operating in vastly different climates of Pakistan and Silicon Valley. With limited exception, our events are private and attendance is curated and by invitation only.
