This might be the first piece of text you saw when you entered Superpage. While its definitely more than an opening caption for us, let's see why we put it there in the first place.
Expertise is precious, everyone values it.
Diving back from cricket..
If you've been to conferences, I'm sure you observed this sight: people just surround experts. They know that they wouldn't get another chance to meet this person, hence try to grab whatever they can in this miniature time slot. Experts obviously cannot mindfully respond to all of them & most often they find it intrusive, the supply never meets demand. Damn, this is such a mess!
Not just conferences, but same is the scenario with mail boxes, social DMs etc., experts are flooded with messages everywhere.
This explains two things:
1. People need advice.
2. Expert advice is scarce.
Before we get to a solution, this brings us to another important question -why should experts share their knowledge in the first place? After all, its their hard earned asset, a random person might never know the struggles they had gone through, the hours they put in to reach where they are. Life is a tough game for all of us, isn't it?
What happens when experts share knowledge?
We all are born as zeroes and become entrepreneurs, rulers, doctors, bureaucrats, professors, engineers, designers etc.
If you zoom out, one of the biggest catalyst for these achievements of mankind is access to knowledge.
⚡⚡ ️And when this knowledge comes directly from a real life expert, its just phenomenally different.
Lets see why:
1. Experts are the people who have been there, done that!
2. They have navigated through the life mazes better than the most.
3. They have been in your shoes and can speak in a perspective that you can understand(unlike school teachers or casual advisers).
4. Nothing can be more personalised than a 1:1 human conversation.
5. Last & the most important, their energy is just infectious. When you speak to them, you'll want to become them!
When these experts have conversations with aspirants, most of the times it changes fates, both of people & countries!
India, Startups & the role of knowledge sharing 🇮🇳
India is having its time of technology. In terms of technology adoption, we're catching up with first world countries at a never before rate. With UPI, wallets & QRs, Indian fintech is much more sophisticated than western economies (heard this from an American friend, yes!). Its now a public belief that India is going to give birth to the next wave of global technology companies.
In this context, knowledge sharing is going to play a huge role in accelerating this growth. Any level of friction removed in learning will unlock new possibilities and helps entrepreneurs solve challenges at a much faster pace. The VC ecosystem seems to understand this early & started making steps with programs like Surge & The Guild(Sequoia), Seedtoscale(Accel) etc.
By making 1:1 connects between startup experts & knowledge seekers, Superpage is going to unlock new possibilities of learning for thriving Indian founders. This can't get more thrilling & satisfying. 💪
Ofcourse, Superpage is not just restricted to startups. We're open to experts of all generes - artists, musicians, educators, creators etc.
