Have you ever wondered about what it’s like to fail as a founder? Could failure be the best thing that ever happened to you? If you crashed and burned, would you do it again? If you could write a book about your startup experiences how would that turn out?
Jawwad Ahmed Farid asked these questions over a ten year adventure with startup failure starting in New York and finishing in Karachi with transit stops in Southern California, Northern Virginia, Dubai, Thailand & Singapore.
Reboot is his story.
The third edition of Reboot is actually three books in one
1. Book One – The Avicena Story – Jawwad’s first encounter with online education, bootstrapped in New York, incubated in Orange County, dead on arrival in Leesburg, Virginia.
2. Book Two – An honest commentary on what went wrong and what you could learn from one failed experiment.
3. Book Three – Pitching for Startups – a brand new chapter with interactive videos on how to pitch like a pro.
The three books grew out of Jawwad’s work as a mentor and judge for the P@SHA Social Innovation Fund, the Asia Pacific ICT Awards and as an Entrepreneurship & Risk Management Professor at the SP Jain School of Management in Dubai & Singapore.
