About this event

We proudly present our next event, a fireside chat with Pawan Kumar Rai, Co-founder of Finshots, a short three-minute daily newsletter, covering the most important financial and business news in a language that even a layman will understand. The idea behind this product was reaching out to a wider audience among millennials through our easy-to-understand stories.

We will have a conversation about how Finshots rose from a college project to how it captured over 200K subscribers without spending on advertising!

Pawan hails from the small town of Giridih in Jharkhand. He has done his MBA from IIM Ahmedabad and started his startup directly out of college with his dorm mates. He is a seasoned trader and passionate about the stock market, which eventually led to the idea of Finshots. Today, Finshots delivers one 3 min read per day to over 200,000 subscribers on India’s most important financial developments.
