ft. Karthik Puvvada, Founder of "Build in Public" Studio. We chat about creative entrepreneurial journey, building portfolio career, the perception about non-linear careers, community & more

Hey everyone,

Here’s this week’s update from The Founder’s Foyer:

If you’ve been sharing stuff and reading through Twitter or LinkedIn, there’s so much buzz around building in public. Especially over the last couple of years, a lot of founders, solopreneurs and enthusiasts who worked on side projects really leveraged the network to both build on their ideas as well as find a fit with the market.

Karthik Puvvada, fondly called KP “The Build in public” Guy, is the founder & CEO of Build in Public studio, a media and consulting company aimed at helping create more successful founders in the world. He’s formerly led educational programs and communities at OnDeck and Day One, having helped 500+ ambitious no-code builders and founders. He also created Build In Public Founder's Manual, a handy digital product to help founders learn how to build in public effectively.

In this video, KP aptly summarized the things one can do to have constant flow of feedback and engagement, as well as the unique paths people can take in the journey towards building in public.
