This weekend we concluded our first every learning retreat! Tucked in the mountains of Chail (Himachal Pradesh), we spend time rediscovering the history of how communities came together back in the day, with bonfires, stories and nourishing food.
The boundary between online and IRL (in real life) is blurring and we are likely to witness hybrid forms of engagement. In this digitally mediated world, there will be a premium on quality in-person meet-ups, interactions and experiences. Offline meet-ups and curated learning programs are a key component of the Network Capital experience, join in!
