Going Beyond a Personal Passion Project
Imagination sparks, and you have an idea. You explore it, give it shape, and it starts to take form. Now, after committing to it, it has blossomed—it has a life of its own. How far should you take it? Where will it go? How much should you give? In this talk, Indhira will share her journey with Anxy, from a project funded via Kickstarter to becoming an established global award-winning independent magazine. She will cover the questions, decisions, and trade-offs that brought them to today, and the many lessons they have learned from risking it all.
