In December 2017, I wrote a piece called Let’s Go Beyond Superficial Virtual Interactions in 2018 encouraging my readers to look for opportunities to interact more in person through meaningful activities. I shared my own experience with our literary group Caravanserai Literati.
At the end of 2019, I published our Literati Reading List as my readers wanted to know what we were reading.
Well, little did I know that the Literati, to self-preserve, would have to go virtual and operate through a video conferencing platform in the wake of the Covid menace!
During this week’s roundtable, we had as our guest Raoul Maier, Founder and Managing Partner at Eudemian Ventures, a fund focused on post-seed investment in North America.
