Day—1 of Startup Summer School 2020 | Leadership Sprint

It’s you who will give life to the matter — Khurram Ellahi advises to 400+ aspiring entrepreneurs from across Pakistan. Khurram Ellahi an Author, TV Host, Philosopher, and Social Scientist in the first lecture of Startup Summer School 2020 — established the need for Self-Actualization & why is it important to start with “Khuddi” of Dr. Allama Muhammad Iqbal. Entrepreneurship raises the level of humans beyond a Resume or CV.

Entrepreneurship is creating new possibilities. Entrepreneurship is not about products — it’s about fulfilling human needs & desires. Self-Actualization or “Khuddi” is discovering yourself and unleashing your truest self — than humans transform matter into iPhone, Tesla, or other amazing ‘products’ that reshaped human life. “Know your Why” should be your fundamental quest— then you become unstoppable — and failure becomes a learning event — and read poetry for new dimensions of life — and you beautify the universe in a new dimension — and you read, learn, try, fail, grow— and you work for what makes you happy — day-in, day-out so hard yet never exhausted because you love it!
