Freedom Cipher Episode 7: Meet Rishi Chowdhury

by Aisha DaCosta on January 27, 2012

Meet Rishi Chowdhury. Since 2009, London has come to be known as the ‘Silicon Roundabout’ due in large to the vast number of technology start-ups being born in the area. There is no wonder that an entrepreneurial fire is burning in the youths of the city. Many are shunning traditional employment for the opportunity to work at start-ups that serve as a breeding ground for budding entrepreneurs.

Episode 7 features Rishi Chowdhury, Co-Founder of YourHiddenPotential, a UK based online platform for aspiring entrepreneurs. Rishi currently works at the UK start-up Huddle where is gaining a different type of education than the one he received at university. Rishi is a serial entrepreneur that started selling sweets to his fellow classmates in secondary school. When Rishi reached university he started a thriving clothing business that provided the hottest fashions at affordable prices to his fellow students. It was in his college years that he realized that many of his colleagues were filled with great entrepreneurial ideas but lacked the confidence and mentorship to put those dreams into action…and so was born YourHiddenPotential.

Check out my interview with Rishi below…
