It has been an excellent journey so far and we have to build a great community of readers who want to learn and understand the importance of personal finance. We have readers who are ready to learn much more if given a chance and they will if they are provided more support and platform.
So whats next? I have decided to take this blog to next level, so I have decided to form groups of enthusiastic people who are ready to learn at different levels and also want to join this “Jagoinvestor” movement and help to spread financial literacy. So we will group meets in different cities (Read Update). We will start from Bangalore first as I am in Bangalore. Later we will extend it to all the major cities in India like Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Pune, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Kolkatta etc.
As I will be in Pune this coming weekend (Sat and Sun) and in Mumbai one day (preferably Saturday), We will start off these groups in Pune and Mumbai with whatever number we have, will choose one lead there and let’s kick off this idea fast :). I am sure we will have 15-20+ each place :). And we will start the group in Bangalore in July (as I will be in Bangalore only after June).
Note: As there are many readers from the Bay Area in the US (Sunnyvale / San Fransisco / San Jose). Readers there can also make the group (even 5 is ok), I have included Bay Area in Registration form Below.
(Changes dynamically with every Entry)
This will be an informal meet which will start from the cafe’s or odd places and later we can think about how to formalize it more in a better way. There will be leads from each city who can take up the responsibilities so that it can function independently. Each city will have the main lead of the group who can be the main person in the group and take the responsibility of the meets. The meets will only be on weekends (2-3 hrs) so that everyone can join. In the start we will start this only in Bangalore (with me leading all the meets) and let’s see how this whole stuff goes, we can then take up this group meet idea to other cities once the situation permits and there are enough readers interested. Below is a registration form for registering yourself with jagoinvestor for these group meets, we will soon start these groups in all the cities once we get more than 10 interested people in any city. Please share your views and how we can make this concept a success.
