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.
