Tim Shaw: Inspiring and Supporting Entrepreneurs at Every Stage of Development

Tim Shaw: Inspiring and Supporting Entrepreneurs at Every Stage of Development
Tim: You know, Spiffy, some people think entrepreneurship isn’t for them because they didn’t grow up with money and they don’t know how to start a business. I hope you can build the belief that you can be an entrepreneur no matter where you start in life. My family didn’t have a lot of money and I was the first in my family to go to college. But I became an entrepreneur. You can, too! Don’t be afraid to ask for help from successful business owners. You don’t need to be an expert in business. I’m not. You just need to be willing to use your creativity and be open to learning. There are people who will help you. Don’t let fear keep you from pursuing a dream.

Mohi Zaman: Investing in a Better Bangladesh by Empowering its Entrepreneurs
Mohi: Thanks for having me, Spiffy! Anchorless Bangladesh is an early-stage Venture Capital firm investing in Bangladeshi founders and startups. With one of the lowest early-stage funding per capita (at less than $1) among its peers, we are on a mission to make Bangladesh more accessible to global capital, having already introduced a couple of first-time investors to the country. This closing of the talent-to-capital mismatch not only democratizes ideas but creates an environment for startups to grow and thrive. Personally, I engage across all functions of the investment process, conducting workshops and sharing high-quality resources.
