Summary

In today’s special episode of the INSIGHTS podcast on ‘student entrepreneurship’, we cover the journeys of two well-known founders in the startup community whose entrepreneurial journeys started right from their college days: Shashank Murali from Tapchief and Farid Ahsan from Sharechat.

We hear from Shashank and Farid on their early life and college days, how they decided to take up entrepreneurship, how they arrived on the idea they went after, how they worked progressively to build their companies, and finally how they would do it differently if they were to do it all over again.

In the podcast, Shashank and Farid take us through their respective journeys, right from the initial experiments they did, projects they worked on before arriving at the business idea of today, to the challenges that they had to overcome along the journey.
