I am so glad sharing this with you all. I am currently a part of Tim Draper's "Draper University" as 40 people from across the world attending his program at Silicon Valley.
As a part of my effort to make sure, I bring value to each and ever rodinhooder no matter where I go, I am interviewing Tim Draper for 30 minutes on Tuesday(Wednesday in India) on his perspectives about Funding, Entrepreneurship and other aspects of building an enterprise, to make sure we bring new and fresh ideas from the valley.
I am calling every rodinhooder to put in questions they would like to get answered directly from Tim Draper, this is a video interview and will be put up everywhere to make sure it reaches you and everyone in the community.
