A 9 year old astronaut?

Dear Reader, what if a 9 year old could become an astronaut?

Kids hold so many massive dreams behind their tiny eyelashes. My 7 year old niece screams day-in and day-out that she wants to become an animal doctor when she grows up. Experiments operating on her turtle stuffed toy with a pair of scissors (RIP Monty) and tries feeding the sick dog in the society her own strawberry cough syrup! Kids are innately passionate and curious.

So when I first heard of the idea behind MercuryEd, I could imagine the impact it could have! Imagine a passionate kid getting an actual chance to study a subject that interests her immensely from an early age! It could shape her future!

This is the potential MercuryEd's idea holds. So if you aren't coming already - sign up now to listen to the co-founders' pitch today!

In other news, in this week's Favcy Review  we are decoding the recent rise of vertical marketplaces in the ecosystem!

In Angel Byteswe weigh in the pros and cons of different angel investment vehicles - from syndicates to VBs.

Lastly, the Future@Favcy section has open positions here at Favcy, in case you’re looking to join our boat!

Do share your feedback on this effort. You can mail us at insider@1stcheque.com

Cheers 🍻

 [P.S - I hope all of you have registered by now for today's Opening Day session with MercuryEd. This Edtech startup is the first-of-its-kind in a $600 Mn Market Opportunity in India and $4Bn globally!]

With the co-founders' energy and journey, I promise it's going to be a stellar show! So join in!
